My World - The Lovely Lotus

Last weekend we visited the Botanic Gardens for a photo event and to our delight the Lotus pond had started to flower. So here are some shots for you to enjoy.


 First the bud


The flower begins to open


The petals unfurl



The flower opens fully



The seed pod emerges


The unripe seed pod is seen




The seed pod dries


Thus ends the life of the Lotus flower.
