This is a flower from a plant that I just got. I put a drip, or drop, of water on it and took a few pictures. It's lit by some random overhead lights and a shoplight (reflected in the drop). I can't get enough of our new lens!

Nice -- I like the soft blur on the petals and the contrast with the sharp edges on the drop.
