Close up rain drops while hiking Vacaresti Delta

Walking inside a Bucharest wetland, on a hot early autumn morning, a short rain started out of nowhere. After the rain, although humid and hot, everything was sparkling in freshness. I have chosen this very image as it feels green and fresh, despite the heat.
