Lotus leaf with rain pool (Ueno Garden, Tokyo)

Lotus leaf with rain pool (Ueno Garden, Tokyo)

Free flowing water pearl drop on a lotus leaf. The leaves of lotus plants have a superhydrophobic surface made of millions of nanoscale rods.
The lotus leaf, or water lily leaf, exhibits an extraordinary ability to keep itself clean and dry with free-flowing water collecting dirt from its surface (the Lotus Effect).
