The lotus flower appeared in legends originating from ancient Egypt. It played an important part in ancient Egyptian religion. The pure white lotus flower, the only plant to fruit and flower simultaneously, emerges from the depths of the muddy swamp. Growing from the mud at the bottom of ponds and streams, the exquisite Lotus flower rises above the water and is usually white or pink with 15 or more oval, spreading petals, and a peculiar, flat seedcase at its center.


In Vietnam, as a symbol of Buddhism, the white lotus represents intelligence and purity, as well as spiritual lightness. This flower is also mentioned in many poems. The lotus has been recognized as the national flower.

Hello Tsilla.

A very intricate flower, i never realise they were like this. Superb colour and detail capture. I think i would have concidered cropping closer or blurring out the orange and blue rimmed pots as they are a slight distraction. Flower, Stunner. TFS
