12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Exotic flower at Peace Pagoda Nepal

Doing a tour in Nepal we visited the Peace Pagoda, near Phewea Lake. This exotic flower was their to be photographed. Luckily there was no wind so I could capture a good still. I experimented putting myself in different positions to obtail pictures of the same flower with divers backgrounds. There were other flowers of the same species - this seemed to be the best specimen.
