Intrigue! by Ruben Alexander

Rain drops on flowers make for some very intriguing sights especially when viewed up close. This shot of the Peruvian Lily was taken at the Republic Day Flower show at Lalbagh in Bangalore. Since I do not have a dedicated macro lens in my kitty, I used the 50mm reversed with aperture locked at f/8.0. But the milling crowd at the show made taking this photo a real challenge.
