I have no idea what kind of flower this is. When I changed the gallery I removed two predominantly blue images, so I needed some color and something other than an insect. Feel free to enlighten me.
For some reason, most flower photography seems to follow what I call the "O'Keefe Method" – make the flower dominate the frame as seen here, and as seen in paintings by Georgia O'Keefe. But there's so much more that can be done with them, more interest with the setting and background, involvement with pollinators and birds, and frankly, just departing from what everyone else is doing.
All that said, I still like this one for the delicacy in color and lighting, and of course the remaining raindrops. So call this a, "Do as I say, not as I do," example if you like.
