Experiments with Calla Lily

We had a lot of rain around here yesterday and this morning Kim noticed this Calla Lily which has been ignored all season had opened.

I found the drops to be fascinating and wanted to experiment with different angles and compositions.

Since I was using a macro lens, I could get really close to highlight the detail.

This is probably my favorite composition, though I can't decide if I like the color or the black & white version better:

I'm leaning towards the B&W version. All of these images were taken hand held. You can also see the light set up in the reflection of the drop (3 macro lights with diffusers).
