I normally associate flowers with spring. However, summer seems to be a great time to shoot freshwater flowers.
I recently returned to Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens. On my previous visit in June, the lotuses were just starting to bloom and the waterlilies hadn't yet appeared. Both the lotuses and the waterlilies are now in bloom.
While I returned to Kenilworth primarily to shoot the waterlilies, I also took the opportunity to shoot some more lotuses.
Most of the photos I've taken at Kenilworth that I really like are close-ups. The garden itself is very pretty, but I've struggled to get a good photo of the garden. The following is a photo of the garden itself. Notice that the lotuses are chest height, making it difficult to get a view of much more than what's right in front of you.
While I was at Kenilworth, I also shot some more dragonflies. With all the still water around, you would think that mosquitoes would be a major problem at the gardens. However, it turns out that dragonflies eat the mosquitoes. I used to think they just looked really cool. Now I have even more reason to love them!
