Jewel Drops and Jewelweed

Jewel Drops and Jewelweed
Jewel Drops and Jewelweed - The actual size of the spotted touch-me-not, one of the five species of jewelweed, is about one inch long. This enlarged photo is fifteen times that size, and depicts many other features of the wildflower. Note that the stem and the sepal are attached near the "face" of the flower (photo-top), and that the petals extend downward to form the end of the "trumpet" or "spur". The early morning dew has weighed down this flower, laying its head upon one of the leaves. Dew drops glisten and form spherical reflecting, jewel-like, mirrors as they hang from the lower edge of the leaf.
