Challenge for Pictures in a Series: Motif or Concept Flowers & Plants with Water Drops!

Plants don’t just get “wet”. The water beads up according to different rules on each plant.

The differences can be remarkable!

A start:

Peter,

I like these!

Succulents like these became popular here only in the past 10 years or so. Before that it was a rare indoor plant!

Interesting how the water clings to the edges of the Cala Lilly flowers but slides of the succulent edges!

Also the size of the drops vary more on the Lilly. I think the the surface tension is much, much lower on the succulents and so, perhaps, fine drops coalesce more easily.

The rain seems to slide fast away from the succulent leaf edges!

The Cala Lilly edges appear to grip the New rain drops longer!

Superb colors, superb framing!
But what is it ?

If it were not an iPhone shot, it could be printed really large, that would be superb (did I say superb?) on a wall…
I have this with my GFX too as you have been my conscience when I take short cuts. So I went out and repeated the shots after warming up with PG Tips British Tea.

I believe it’s this Succulent, Crassula platyphylia

The variety might be Crasula Bergundy platyphylia

Which picture are you referring to? I would have imagined the raindrop-laden white Cala Lilly to have topped your list for printing!


Well, I will now review my GFX versions and hope they are as wonderful!

Sorry, the Lilly seems to "easy", a perfect catch but well…
