Guttating oat grass field closeup

Buy Add to Lightbox
Three stalks of tack oat grass {Avena sativa}  with large drops of clear water at their tips stand against a black background with multiple other strands of grass blurred out of focus in the background.  The water is present because the grass is guttating; guttation is a process wherein plants release water at the tips of their stems due to root pressure.  I like how the other strands of grass give the image a feeling as though it's taken in a lawn or field of grass, without distracting from the primary element (the guttation).   This is an uncropped image, so it should be able to be enlarged to print at 16x24" easily.
