A tasty treat for sparrows in China

Sparrows forage on lotus flower
Here is a pretty picture, indeed.   It was taken by Wang Xibao at the Zizhuyuan Park, in Beijing, China.   The two sparrows appear to be sharing and eating the reproductive central parts of the lotus bloom, such as the carpel (including stigma, style and ovary) plus stamen and anther.
