What glorious detail when the sun came out right after a rainstorm. Everything was encrusted with jewel-like water droplets, especially the daylily petals and every stem and leaf.
I took many photos searching for the essence of the moment. These three photos, against the natural black background of a deep shadow, captured it the best, and of the three I think the second is my favorite, not only for all the droplets, but for the leaf that reaches down into the right-hand corner. Not that I have to decide, but I do love that leaf with its veiny finish while still getting all the detail of a closeup.. . . . . . .
