The Lotus pond near us now has only white flowers, and not very many of them. The plants look healthy enough, so maybe I came too late this year to take their pictures. Still, here they are, and by the way there were many dragonflies.
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.
