I have this serious weakness for wet plants. I love getting pictures of plants in water, with drops of water on there and/or with drops of water falling off of them.
I hope I don't have to tell you this but immediately following a thunderstorm? Really good time to find these conditions.
Unfortunately the light was awfully low at this point so a flash was required in most cases. Most of the time I really hate the flash. I think it tends to just wash everything out rather than enhance anything.
As it turns out I rather liked the effect I got from using the flash. That and I certainly don't have the ability to sit still enough to have taken pictures without a flash for how long the shutter was taking.

This one is up by one of the signs advertising our apartment complex (hence the better lighting - the signs light up at night!)
It's actually the greenery that goes along with some lilies, but I like the wet grass look.
These are some roses that I've been meaning to photograph for quite awhile now. Unfortunately they look like they got a little extra beat up in the rain.
This brand new bud seemed to fare pretty well though.
And these little bell-shaped pink guys looked really cool while back-lit by the apartment sign.
I have a huge weakness for Hostas, especially while they're wet. They are the coolest leaves in existence. I love how much variation there is between different kinds of Hostas while you can still tell they're all related. I especially love the veining that all Hostas have.
Some Hosta flowers dripping all over the place. (specifically on my toes...)
I don't know what these plants are, but I think they look like trees covered in snow. Except they're tiny. The whole bush goes up to my knee. Still they look pretty cool
