my favorite flower at Villa Taranto

Last but not least, the flower that captivated me... the Nelumbo Nucifera. I had no idea what type of flower this was and the sign (Nelumbo Nucifera) did not help any. The knowledgeble British couple (who travel the world to see flowers) did not know what kind of flower this was either. When I got home, I was very surprised to find out after googling Nelumbo Nucifera that is is the Lotus flower. How did I not know what a lotus flower looked like?

So here you go... my photos of the magnificent lotus flower:

Absolutely incredible-such beauty and look at the subtle transition of color on the petals and all the fine details. Thank you for sharing this treasure of nature.

Girasoli, that is beautiful and your photography is marvelous. Totally gorgeous. If it makes you feel any better, I would not have known it was a lotus either. Ciao!

It's an awesome flower, not doubt about it. I've never seen a lotus in person. Love that little seed pod head thingy in the third photo. Great pics!

Incredibly beatiful - and you captured it soo well.

That is just a beautiful flower. Perfect shape, perfect color.

Thanks everyone :) It really is a stunning flower to see in person.
