Some time ago, I posted a black and white version of this picture and I got some comments that a few people want to see the color version of the picture. Well, here it is, unfiltered, red and big.
This remains one of my favorite close-ups. My favorite part of the picture is not the flower, it is the large round water droplets and its reflection in the light. I can also see a few drops falling, allowing gravity to help them land.
Here are the technical specifications:
