Rain on a lupine leaf: alternate crop

Buy Add to Lightbox
A black and white image of a single silver bush lupine (Lupinus albifrons) leaf.  The droplets of water from a recent rain are in a dazzling array of positions and sizes, and the epithelial hairs are easily visible (in close crops or enlargements).  The leaf is a palmately compound leaf composed of nine leaflets all supported on a single (not visible) petiole.  .  This plant is in my front yard; we grew it from seed we got at the Theodore Payne Foundation; the image is completely natural – the water is all from a new year’s eve rain, not a spray bottle :)
