Another September legume in the Crosstimbers taken after a heavy dew.

A lovely capture of this pretty flower - the dew almost makes the petals look frilled - quite amazing.

Wow! An interesting capture with dew that actually looks like it must be frozen because of how large it is. Great find!

@Steven: I was trying to bring out the dew with processing -- maybe I overdid it.

It looks crystalized, very nice effect, and would look different once things warmed up.

beautiful macro and i just love the droplets of water on the flower. i have posted a few shots with water droplets in my last 2 posts, it just denotes a nice fresh feel.

@Stunner: I agree. I've been lucky to be out on wet mornings and after the rain. I will one day make a mister just for the purpose of faking things... You are right about the feel of the photos.

LOVE it! The dew is just so gorgeous... and I always cheat with a water bottle if nature isn't co-operating.. ;-)

@amy: Thanks, Amy. I haven't cheated yet but I am certainly not above it...
