Pink Lotus




This lovely pink lotus was in water in a huge pot at the front door of a hotel in Irago, Japan by the sea. The pink lotus is considered by Buddhists as the "supreme lotus"; lotus flowers are the symbol of purity.

I got a shot of the lotus seeds in the pod as well as this almost perfect bud.

I love the 'viewpoint' of the oriental gardens as they know how to 'stage' each plant to its advantage.
