American Lotus Leaf

Sandbridge, VA

In case you are wondering, it is just regular water in the center of the leaf. The leaves of the lotus are so super hyrdophobic that they "repel" water o such a degree that you get these extreme beautiful beads of water that are not often seen on any other surfaces in nature.
