Stunning drone shots by a Japanese photographer show off the natural beauty of cherry blossoms covering the surface of a Tokyo lake at the beginning of spring.
Tokyo-based National Geographic photographer Danilo Dungo visits the Inokashira Park to admire the park each year, and his drone pictures reveal a perspective often gone unnoticed.
The pictures capture an art-piece of the Japanese cherry, called sakura.
It's speculated the pink flower is native to the Himalayas, but is now widespread throughout the northern hemisphere. However, it's considered the national flower of Japan.
Mr Dungo has entered this year's National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest with a picture of blue carpet flowers at Hitachi seaside park.
