Dragonfly On Dried Sacred Lotus
Photograph - Fine Art Photograph
Blue dasher dragonfly, Pachydiplax longipennis, perched on the dried seedpod of a sacred lotus, Nelumbo, in a lily pond. Sunlight reflecting on the transparent wings of the insect makes them iridescent.
The lotus is a sacred flower in both Buddhism and Hinduism. The dried seed pods, although very different than the showy flowers, have a minimalist beauty all their own.
