Lotus flower in the fields

This lotus flower is growing in the ponds next to the rice fields in the countryside just outside of Siem Reap. The center of the flower looks like it could be plastic but that is how the stamen of the lotus looks. The lotus leaves are very ragged appearing which is a big difference from the water lilly pads.
