Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Every year we are amazed by the growth of the lotus. The water in the dam is smooth in spring, then leaves begin to appear, unfurling on the surface as the red lotus plant begins to shoot. Soon there are buds, then as they open into blooms more buds push up towards the light, the older flowers start to lose their petals, their inner seedpod swelling, so the waterscape changes constantly. In this photo you can see the lotus in each of its summer growth stages; leaf, bud, flower, pod and seed.
