[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We have a pond on our school campus where all sorts of water lilies including the Indian Lotus grow, especially during warmer months. I took this picture of an Indian Lotus on August 1 this year.

Nelumbo nucifera, also known as Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, or simply lotus, is one of two species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae. The Linnaean binomial Nelumbo nucifera is the currently recognized name for this species.
This plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances, its seeds may remain viable for many years with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1300 years old recovered from a dry lake-bed in northeastern China.
Native to Tropical Asia and Queensland, Australia, it is the national flower of India and Vietnam.
