This paper has studied the lotus effect of the biomimetic engineering that is inspired from the nature. The biomimetic engineering has been improved with the nanotechnology. This paper has observed the hydrophobic property of the surface of the lotus leaf by using the scanning electron microscope (SEM) and atomic force microscope (AFM). The nano-scale of the hydrophobic lotus leaves are maximized the surface tension of water. The general grass leaf has been compared with the lotus leaf through the SEM and AFM - in the viewpoint of the 2D and 3D morphology. Also, The pre-existing of the hydrophobic theory was investigated and compared with the experimental observations for the lotus leaf.
