I think she knows she's beautiful and she's proud of it. What do you think?

Hope you like it.

from wikipedia:

Nelumbo is a genus of aquatic plants with large, showy, water lily-like flowers commonly known as lotus or sacred lotus. The generic name is derived from the Sinhalese word Nelum. There are two species in the genus, the better known of which, N. nucifera, or "Sacred Lotus," is the well-known national flower of India and Vietnam.

There is residual disagreement over which family the genus should be placed in. Traditional classification systems recognized Nelumbo as part of the Nymphaeaceae (water lily) family, but traditional taxonomists were likely misled by evolutionary convergences associated with an evolutionary shift from a terrestrial to an aquatic life style. In the older classification systems it was recognized under the biological order Nymphaeales or Nelumbonales. Nelumbo is currently recognized as its own family, Nelumbonaceae, as one of several distinctive families in the eudicot order Proteales. Its closest living relatives are shrubs or trees (Proteaceae and Platanaceae).
These plants are unrelated to the bird's-foot trefoils and deer-vetches of the genus Lotus.

Bonjour Sayat,
Très belle publication malgré un cadrage un peu trop serré sur le bas de l'image. La maitrise de la lumière est excellente et fait bien ressortir les détails et resplendir la couleur dominante.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bakış açısı,renkleri,pozlama ve ışık kullanımı ile mükemmel bir yakın plan çalışması olmuş.Çiçekle fon arasındaki kontrast ve su zerrecikleri de çok güzel görünüyor.
Selamlar,iyi bayramlar..

Hi Sayat and all my compliments.
You have shared a true art shot. Great use of lights. Colours are wonderful. I want to watch the picture again and again. Excellent DOF and details of the all flower. Damped up BG supplements the well illuminated subject greatly. Bravo and TFS.

Bonjour Sayat,
Une parfaite maitrise de la lumière ici, por cette magnifique fleur de lotus. Le jaune est une couleur très difficile à bien photographier. Un petit regret néanmoins, tu n'as pas laissé assez d'espace dans la partie inférieure, ce qui crée un certain manque d'équilibre dans la composition. Notice intéressante et instructive.
Un grand merci
