Description: We're often so taken by beauty that we overlook the inadvertent function of flowers and plants. In this near-macro shot a water lily slowly opens and beneath is the shell of dragonfly nymph. It has emerged from the pond depths to use this gorgeous flower as its launch-pad to the sky. Note that this was shot on iPhone 12 Pro equivalent ISO 32, 4.2mm, f1.6, 1/882.
