Pictured: Farmers on boats glide along a canal completely covered in green lily-pads as they harvest their vibrant pink flowers.  The workers carefully navigated the 8ft-deep body of water and packed their gondola-style wooden boats with piles of the fuchsia-coloured lilies.<br />
<br />
The delicate freshwater plants hovered among the lily-pads before they were hand-picked by workers in Barisal, Bangladesh.  Donning rainbow-splashed sunhats, the farmers had to be careful to avoid poisonous water snakes which tend to lurk beneath the blooms.  SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS.<br />
