The Asrai water nymphs are as deathly afraid of capture as they are of the sun, for if captured or if even a single ray of sunlight touches them, it is said that they die and turn into a pool of water. They are, however, said to enjoy bathing in the moonlight.

Setting a lower opacity on the swirl to allow you to see through to the boats in the background would have helped to make this a little more believable... I like the reflection in the water though...
