Morning Harvest

A woman harvests water lilies in the fertile Mekong Delta in Vietnam. “This is a one-kilometer [0.6-mile] pond,” Nhan Le, who submitted the photo, writes. “Every morning the owner collects those flowers and sells to a reseller for 10,000 Vietnamese dong [45 U.S. cents] a pack.” Le's shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
