Black-eyed Susan in the rain
The humidity was so high when I was shooting this - from directly above the subject - that I couldn't help but add some of my own rain, in the form of perspiration that landed on the camera. The flower was sheltered by the tripod-mounted camera looming over it. This is a focus stack of seven shots, life-sized on the camera sensor, so of course larger than life when viewed on a screen or printed any larger than ~1x1.5 inches (the camera sensor measures 24x36 mm).
