Flowers in the dew

“There is dew in one flower and not in another, because one opens its cup and takes it in, while the other closes itself and the drop runs off.” James Aughey

  1. Did you take this photograph?

  2. Yes, in the cloud forest about a fortnight ago. All the photos that aren’t explicitly credited to someone else are mine.

  3. It’s gorgeous. There’s so much dew the flower looks like it’s bursting. I bet that’s what it feels like to be in heaven for a flower.

  4. I liked the contrast between the furry stamens of the dry flower and the pearly ones of the wet flower. The wet one does look gorgeous, but I wonder if it might feel overwhelmingly weighed down by all that dew!
