Nelumbo lutea (American Lotus). Nelumbonaceae (Lotus family). Newnan's Lake, Alachua County, Florida. 2012.
The lake is quickly drying up in our severe drought. I don't imagine that the flowers will be able to survive much longer. It was a unique experience to walk out onto the lake bed to take the photo.
