Lotus in the backyard

Unread postby sury » Wed May 22, 2019 8:54 am

This is supposed to be a species that blooms for couple of days and disappears for the rest of the year (according to Missus).
We were on a trip last week and the boss was worried that the bloom will be over by the time we returned. Fortunately that
has not been the case. She bugged me to capture the flower before it is too late and I obliged. Nine images bracket merged with
HDR Machinery SW.

It's absolute beauty, Sury. :)
Glad it outlived any mortality expectations… :) And, we also got a chance to see it.

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Thank you Yildiz.
Also, a correction. This is not a Lotus as I am told previously but some species of a Cactus flower as I am told anew. :)
