the water droplet

I don't know what this plant is but the leaves are very thick and this leaf is probably 15 inches / 40 cm across.  On this rainy day a bead of water collected at it lowest point and acted as a natural lens to produce a bit of magnification of the the leaf's veins.


  1. It looks like a nasturtium Tropaeolum sp to me. Capucine in French.

  2. I looked that up on that famous internet, and I would have to agree with you. Thanks so much for the identification !
