Lotus flower petals.

This picture was taken at the end of July, on a hot summer day. I was hand holding my camera, searching for subjects when I fell upon this lotus flower. I loved the way the petals presented themselves. Of two shots this was the best by far. I focused on the petals more than the flower as I could not get a good top down shot in this case as the flower was surrounded by water.

Canon XTI, Sigma macro lens 150mm, Iso 800, f/9, 1/2000sec.
