  • English: A daisy. The flower is under the water level, which has risen gently and smoothly. Hence surface tension prevents the water from submerging the flower.
  • Français : Une marguerite. La fleur est en dessous du niveau de l'eau, qui a augmenté lentement. La tension de surface empêche l'eau de submerger la fleur.
  • Česky: Sedmikráska (chudobka) je pod vodou, která ji nadnáší. Před ponořením jí brání cs:povrchové napětí.
