A lovely blue borage flower decorated with lots of tiny droplets. The flower and foliage are edible — lovely as garnish for a salad and tasting a little like cucumber. Here they are pure eye candy, with daisy fleabane creating the bokeh background. (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/125 sec., ISO 200, partly cloudy, handheld)
