PURPLE RAIN

Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Canon 50mm 1.8 II lens, ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/2000 sec.
  A quick evening storm blew through tonight and with the sun jumping out right after, I used the opportunity to grab the fast 50 and get some macro shots of the water-dabbed flowers in my front yard.
  This particular shot really shows the speed of the 50mm lens. The wind was blowing the rest of these purple flowers around but with the focus dot squarely on the one, the shutter caught it absolutely crisp.
