Natural landscapes: sprinkles of morning glory


I don’t know the name of this plant, but I sure love the artistry of the petals sprinkled with summer dawn dew. The challenge was to have a very shallow depth of field (to keep the background out of focus, so it doesn’t compete with the main subject of the picture) yet still achieve tack-sharp focus on just the right area of the scene.
Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter (probably)
