Have Fun at Lotus Pond

The lotus flower or what could also be called padma is one of the most memorable flowers for me. Beautiful flowers that usually grow in ponds, rivers, swamps with calm waters and are often used for symbols on Buddhist ceremonial equipment. In the lotus pond, how many types of animals could you find in this painting?
