The lake on which we were kayaking was loaded with lilly pads and while I have seen these water plants from a far, I had even looked at the flower very closely. So, I took the chance of dropping my camera into the water, reached out over the edge of the ever rocking kayak and snapped away. I gots shots of the edge of the plant, the water and no plant, just the edges of the green pads and than finally the shot I was hoping for. I was quite surprise (I didn't drop the camera and) at how the inside of the flower looks.
