Though I did conclude the lotus series, I still had a left over image that I wanted to post from the same shoot.
This is a lotus leaf from the same pond, and it was so interesting for me to see that they come right out of the water in a curled form. Then they unfold themselves into a lovely spread before finally settling down on the water majestically.
While focusing on this leaf that was uncurling, a damsel fly came and found a parking slot. As it sat there on the edge of the leaf, my ears heard the joyful noise of the opening shutter to capture this lovely image.
Photographed with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS USM L Lens and Canon EF 2X Extender. Handheld.
