Lotus Flower Bud

Lotus Bud

Lotus flowers represent purity in Buddhist thought.  We have some growing in a small pond (in a clay pot) in our front yard, and it was overcast today so I took a shot of one of the buds (with my wife helping out holding up a black shirt as a backdrop).  The flowers don’t last very long once they open, normally about a day or two.
