Life on a lily leaf

Flowering water lily at Olbrich Botanical GardenTo look at the lily leaf as a natural habitation is to be amazed at the scale of creation.

Each round leaf evokes a miniature world.

Did you know a duckling could rest on a lily leaf?
The peculiarity of its creatures fills me with wonder.
