Foliage often photographs well when illuminated from behind.  These lotus leaves are no exception.  I find lotus leaves, blossoms and seed pods photogenic in any case.

The lotus has great symbolic meaning in Buddhism. It involves the notion of rising out of the mud of creation towards eventual spiritual enlightenment.

f.l. = 59mm, aperture = f5.6, shutter = 1/200 sec., ISO = 400.

    Beautiful effects created by the sunlight on and behind the leaves. Amazing.
