Sacred lotus flower. This lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) is a member of the water lily family, but is unusual in producing leaves which are held above the water. The flower lasts for only one day, and the seeds may germinate after remaining dormant for many years. The plant is regarded as sacred in India and China because Buddha is supposed to have been born in the heart of a lotus. Photographed on Bali, Indonesia.
