Rain flower

The trail was steep, the brush was wet and the wind was cold, but suddenly
right at my feet appeared this rare blossom of a Rain flower.

  1. It looks like it holds a galaxy within it.

    • I can imagine all kinds of things in rain drops like that. This one intrigued me because of the relative size of the drop to the leaves. I wonder just how many things like that I miss!

    • I thought it was a treat, too! Somehow the light was just right to make the water sparkle and it caught my attention. Luckily the camera was able to capture it, not exactly, but close enough to be interesting.

  3. A diamond but with more reflection and clarity than the brightest one. How pretty!

    • It did look a bit like like a diamond when I first noticed it. Some of the things that occur in nature amaze me.

  10. How special looking flower You have presented to us. I have never heard about it.

    • The name is facetious, sartenada. Somehow the junction of the leaves of the little plant captured the large drop of water and it sparkled so much that I noticed it and was able to get a photo. I don’t even know what the plant itself is. I’ve never seen anything quite like it myself.
