Photographer's Note

A separate pavilion in the Botanical Garden of Liberec is dedicated to the plant "Victoria amazonica".
It is a genus of water-lilies and needs a large pool, because its leaves can have up to 3 meters in diameter, leaves in my photo have about 1 m in diameter. This plant is native to the Amazon River basin, in shallow lakes and bayous. The leaf of Victoria is able to support quite a large weight (up to 32 kg), on the internet I saw a picture of a baby (about 1 year) sitting on a leaf.
