This is a photograph of an insect sitting on the flower of the American Lotus (Nelumbo lutea). The flower stands out in this unusual lighting. The photo was taken at Brazos Bend State Park, Needville, Texas near Houston.
I am happily living and enjoying life in the beautiful city of Cuenca, Ecuador, located over 8,000 feet up in the Andes Mountains of South America. Here, I can pursue my passion that is outdoor photography. My wife and I came here from Houston, Texas, where I worked as an information technology manager. I was also a marine biologist for 10 years, so my passion for all things in nature is, well, natural!
