When I saw this, I was Wowed by its unique perspective given to us by the unique delivery medium. Of course I had to wonder what plant(s) were being revealed to us thru that; I see that the caption gives me that info. Congratulations on your category win!

Thankyou!! I tip my hat to you. I'm chuffed. Smiling

Cinda, I was going for the water droplets (I get a bit enthusiastic about water droplets!) and didn't realise I'd captured the reflections until I looked at it large on the computer screen. Pure luck! Hilarious!

I couldn't for the life of me figure out what the plant was but I voted for it! Next year I must squint a little closer at my liliums to see what is going on. Great shot Della!

Great photo here! I could see the lily bloom in the drops, but couldn't guess at the bud. I'm glad you explained.
