‘The Jewel Is In The Lotus’

Went for a paddle around our lake the other day (8-9-17), mostly for enjoyment but also to photograph the lotus flowers or water lily as some call them, while they are still out.  The title of this post is loosely translated from the most popular Buddhist mantra ‘Om mani padme hum’.  Lotus flowers are amazing in that their roots are in the mud or muck of a pond or lake, yet the flowers are amazingly beautiful.

No, I didn’t tip over in my kayak!  Sometimes the reflection is more beautiful than the actual scene.

Hump!! Didn’t realize we had beaver on the lake.  Very industrious building engineers!
