Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera)

This aquatic plant is full of mythical and religious symbolism. It has been the subject of medication, decorates temple walls, and features prominently in many world religions. It is truly a flower that is at home in places of grace.

This lotus seed head was holding itself above the green leaves as if the seeds were observing all around this pond in Norfolk, Virginia.
