[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another Lotus Flower or Water Lily.
This time it is white with its stem showing.
It would fully open in a couple of days.

The beautiful nature of water lilies has led to their widespread use as ornamental plants. The Mexican water lily, native to the gulf coast of North America, is planted throughout the continent. It has escaped from cultivation and become invasive in some areas, such as California's San Joaquin Valley. It can infest slow moving bodies of water and is difficult to eradicate. Populations can be controlled by cutting top growth. Herbicides can also be used to control populations using glyphosate and fluridone.

Hello Ram,
This is the white pendant-and the spring version, what concerns the colors- of your previous Lotusflower shot (even if you have taken it in September). Very fine decentred composition and a beautiful transparency of the white Lotus. I like a lot.
Have a nice weekend
With friendly salutations
