Jhongsing Lotus Pond

Lotus
I was quite delighted a few weeks ago to notice that a couple of Lotus Flowers [Nelumbo nucifera 荷花] had bloomed in the lotus ponds in Jhongsing Village.  In the last few days or so, the number blooming has grown dramatically.  I went out yesterday morning to take a few shots.  It rained the previous night and some of the raindrops on the leaves created some lovely bokeh in a few photos.

Ready to open

The picture below is my favorite of the bunch, it reminds me of traditional paintings depicting Hindu deities standing atop of lotus blossoms [well, as close as I can get without someone real or supernatural actually standing on top]:

Balancing the elements [attempting to at least]
