There is a huge, totally unattended, and old lotus pond sitting next to a highway. Once a year the pond explodes with huge leaves, thick and fat blossoms and finally the pods that carry the seeds for next year's blossoms. People drive for hours just to catch a glimpse of the beauty 'by the highway.' This particular photo was chosen to show the huge leaves and drop of water with the lead-in of the pod stem. The way the stem bent towards the drop and leaf was interesting; like a graceful frame to the large leaf and its catch of water-droplet.
