Beads

Pulling into our drive I noticed this flower again, but this time after a summer shower. Believe it or not it had a grasshopper like the other day. This one, though, was odd and ugly. I was able to annihilate it without harming it (using photoshop of course). I really like the way the beads of water came out. I did some heavy sharpening along with a layer mask so it would only apply to the flower and not the background. Most of the flower is blurry beause the image was shot at f/1.8. The front petal and the tip of the stamen were at the same focal plane in relation to the lens. Such a shallow depth of field can be achieved only with my most inexpensive lens. Go figure.
