Update: here are some details for all those kind enough to ask,
this is the Giant Water Lily at Kew. check the link and see the baby sat on the pad!
But even more, a friend in the pub was telling me its exceptionally strong leaves inspired Sir Joseph Paxton to construct an huge conservatory at Chatsworth House, in which the lily flowered for the first time in Britain. So I checked and he is dead right!
