Thai lotus farmer Usa Mahmueangbon, 47, picks lotus flowers in her family's lotus and water lily farm in Saladin village in Nakhon Pathom, about 50 kms west of Bangkok, Thailand 28 August 2013. The farm is run by her and her two sisters and was started 30 years-ago by their now deceased father. Every second day to allow for re-growth of the beautiful flower, the sisters wade into the 2.4 hectare cultivated waters to hand pick about 1,500 lotus flowers that are then sold to a wholesaler who pays less than half a euro per flower and takes them to market for further onward sale as decoration, temple offerings and sometimes food.
