BTW, I will upload at least one hour
of a dragon fly coming & going on the lotus stem if anyone wants
to stream it on their tv just as a background. I captured the long video on our security camera. Can't get
quite as close & no sound as on my 35mm, but kind of cool, imho, and hope you'll agree.
Also, lotus are easier to grow than sunflowers, roses, cosmos, etc......"easy as pie" .
Bees & dragon flies love them, too, though for different reasons.
