Sacred Lotus Flower Close-Up

Common Names: Sacred Lotus, Indian Lotus, Bean Of India
Species: Nelumbo nucifera

A close-up of a white-petalled Sacred Lotus flower, there are also a coupe of small bees also on the flower. I love the textures in this shot, of the petals, of the stamens and the stigma structure. Sacred Lotus flowers are great subjects for photography.
