Yellow lotus

Yellow Lotus Flower 6967

Yellow lotus is Nelumbo lutea, a plant with a distribution so wide it ranges from Ontario down to Central America and the Caribbean. I wish I got around as much as it does. I do get around Austin, though, and I took this photograph at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, which is 20 miles south of where I live, on July 10th. That was the same outing that produced the portraits of the eastern cottontail and the spotted orbweaver and the neon skimmer that you recently saw.  A productive visit, wouldn’t you say?
