As the world goes by like the buzzing bee, you still have the power to remain calm in your blossomed potential.
So rise above the murky waters, and deal with the challenges of daily life. Yet, stay beautiful like this precious lotus flower.

PS: The blurred bee in the frame was intentional, as I wanted the focus to be on the lotus. Plus since it was in a shadow area, if chosen a higher shutter speed, would have lost vital details of the flower, as well as the bee, which is quite dark here, as you can see.
