The Lotus flowers have started to bloom. This morning there were only two flowers that had opened up, but I still managed to take quite a few shots, especially with bees and dragonflies hovering and flitting near them.
What would summer be without dragonflies? This past week I went to the lotus pond near our house and photographed the following dragonflies.
There were several other types of dragonflies at the lotus pond, but the photos I took did not turn out well enough. Will try again another day.
