Begonia Close up with a Telephoto Lens

I was out this morning, in the rain, trying to catch a Lorikeet Chick being fed.

I looked down and saw the water drops on the Begonia.

I generally use extension tubes for macro shots but had a telephoto on the camera trying to shoot the Lorikeets.

They got away – but the Begonia didn’t!

When I shoot close ups I try to find the perfect specimen – I think I got away with a couple of dud leaves on this one, due to the striking pattern of the Monotone image.
