Wet Leaf

On a recent day of wild but intermittent rain it was fun to photograph this leaf during a pause in the precipitation. To me, the water drops look like glass. The grit in the drop on the lower right comes from blow back due to the violence of wind and rain, and adds measure of irregular reality to a surface that could otherwise be too perfect.
