those little 'shower heads' are so freaky!
Denise, beautiful images. I love the pretty lotus flower. Happy Sunday!
I have never seen a lotus up close before. Beautiful macros.
Beautiful Lotus pods
Splendid - I had no idea what that first picture could have been!
Wonderful, wonderful photos! The macro, I had not known what it is. It is rather like a little world all in it's own. I have never seen such a thing. Then the whole beautifulflower, truly gorgeous!!!
So neat to get both the bud and the open flower!
so beautiful, love the really close up view, it looks like craters on the moon
It would be nice if I could grow lotuses in my garden. Very pretty flower.
Beautiful Denise. I seen one of these the other day at the arboretum and didn't know what it was....now I do thanks to you.
A very different, and very beautiful perspective. Thank you.
Denise, that is just an amazing macro. It really shows what Laura says on her meme -- Noticing he beauty of nature that might be overlooked if we didn't slow down and look. I just kept looking back and forth between the macro and the other shots of the beautiful lotus, thinking 'wow I would never have noticed that'.... (Next time I will; thank you!
amazing detail on the flower
So they are called LOTUS's??? I never knew that... I see them in August in the Italian Water Gardens at Biltmore --and love taking pictures of them. You got some great macros.Hugs,Betsy
Amazing macro, love the details I have never seen before.
What neat photos! Great to see something you can't normally see with the naked eye.
I'd love to have a lotus like this to stare at home...
Lovly shots of lotus.Have a nice day :)Mormorhttp://www.starbear.no/mormor/2014/09/15/tett-pa-fagerfredlos/
Great set of macros. I would never have guessed what it was just from the first photo! Fascinating.
really nice shots the flower is quite vibrant
What a stunning macro and lovely lotus from flower to seed head.
Wow......this seed head is extraordinary......lovely photos!Happy Monday!Ruby
The seeds of the lotus look almost like eyes peeking out of little round windows, so mystical.
Love these, Denise. They just fascinate me...
Those pods are so beautiful and work well in bouquets. Very nice photos
I love that first picture, I have never seen one of those beforeMollyxxx
It looks like little round faces peeking from the holes! What neat photos. Love this set!
Wow - how gorgeous!
A fascinating plant! Gorgeous shots!
Love your shots!
Fantastic photos, Denise! Loved the first one particularly!About that Scotsman...he's one of the "children of the world"--Just FYI, a lot of people don't understand why the murals are allowed to be in the Denver Airport, but the airport is privately funded, as I mentioned, and the people who control it believe that there will be a cataclysm and then a new world will emerge (New World Order) when most people will be gone and the children of the world will inherit a time of peace, but with the elite in charge. This is one of their ways of telling us what is going on, without trumpeting it loudly. It's like the Georgia Guidestones (look them up if you don't know about them). I thought you might like to get the explanation. We just had to see them for ourselves! And yep, there they were!
Beautiful shots! I love the seed heads of the lotus.
Love the macros..looks really cool Denise...beautiful flowers too..Michelle
I love lotus and didn't realize that's what I was looking at from your first macro photo. Amazing!
