Blue Lotus Water Gardens, Victoria, Australia. I captured this macro shot of the golden reproductive parts of a Nelumbo nucifera (white lotus) flower head–which was ready forpollination; this plant can use thermoregulation – to self-heat the flowers to aid in fertilisation. The sacred lotus is a rhizomatous aquatic perennial and is a ‘living fossil’ dating to pre-history, having been domesticated in Asia about 7,000 years ago. It is believed that its main pollinators are mostly bees, flies and beetles.
