Jewelweed

I took this one morning just after the sun came up over the mountain and the dew was still readily visible.  Mountain Dew.  That has a funny ring to it.  


It’s a jewelweed plant.  The leaf is really cool because when water drops on it, it looks to be silver.  So, people also call it the silverleaf plant.

In any case, the black and white contrast of this photo really highlights the “silver” of the water droplets.
