Photographer's Note

.


Arriving to Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge (between Winnie and High Island), I was struck by the lone flower that I previously saw only in my native country Vietnam.

In popular term, we called it LỤC BÌNH in southern part's Mekong Delta. Where this flower is, there is Rice also. I am not aware of any relationship between lục bình and lúa (rice) but while trying to track down the Rice Fields on local map (not wheat), I found it.

Posting here, I am asking for indication of potential relationship between this type of flower and rice, if any. Also, if you have seen it any other places that close to rice paddies, please let me know.

Temporarily, I am just "mention" it as Cultural Flower since it has deep root in my memory of my tropical country.

Thank You.
