I just remembered when I first took a shot of this Lotus flower some time 5 years back in Duka Bay using a cellphone which I don't like much the result, and then again I tried another shot when we visited Duka Bay last May 2 this year that I hope you like it.
When I took this shot, it was early in the morning at almost 8 am. Before noontime, I observed that the flowers of lotus got shut.
Berniemack Arellano, a fellow travel blogger was right when he told me the lotus' characteristics and behavior during sunrise. Seemed like this flower is welcoming the sunlight in the morning and closes at almost noontime.
