ahhh...uummmm

whilst waiting for the canoeing competition to begin, I discovered this area of lotus flowers (or is it water lilies?) anyway, woohoo!! never knew our climate suits the species.
Meanwhile, I shall get into lotus position, relax and get inspired for my next week's edition of daily photo (getting harder by day :s)........ahh..uummm..

see the lovely photo of lotus at Lisi's HongKongDailyPhoto

this is beautiful...really, your composition is great! I shall add a link later, btw, I think lotus and water lily are the same...but not 100% sure ;-)

I've just looked a few things up and according to wikipedia this is the European White Waterlily (Nymphaea alba) and the genus lotus contains approximately 150 species.

But it does look remarkably similar to Lisi's lotus and ancient Asian art shows Buddha positioned above lotuses and there's also a Lotus sutra so really I'm not a great deal wiser. Lovely photo.

Down Dog into Plank position, then jump into... vóila! Lotus position!

Beautiful lotus shot! i just comment on Lisi's telling her how much I love the lotus flower and was very tempted to post one myself. A lotus just bloomed in my garden. One whole year it was flowerless.
