Lotus


No not the sportscar, although one of those would be nice too! Picked up a Lotus plant for the pond this weekend, I hope it enjoys its new home. They are beautiful, with the most amazing blooms, almost surreal looking. Even the leaves are interesting, with their waxy coating causing any water to bead into the centre. I'll post more picture when this bud blooms. Shot taken with a Nikon D300, Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG Macro an an SB800 at camera left.

Now I know where they got the inspiration for "Audrey" in "Little Shop of Horrors"!

How funny -- I didn't think of either the car or the flower when I saw "Lotus". I thought of Lotus, the IBM company. LOL

Very nice pic, as always.
