I took this one during the same rainy walk as when I took Redbud in the Rain 1. After I finished shooting from underneath, it occurred to me to try for a rain-covered closeup of these beautiful heart-shaped leaves, and I took three different shots to increase the odds that one would turn out well.
After that, there was really very little to do.
Here is the full color version. I have a hard time deciding which one I like better. The form and texture show up better in black & white, of course, but I do like those red stems and the redness of the two smallest leaves.
