When photographing this plant in the garden I was trying to capture the best view point. I noticed the 'wave' like pattern of the leaves and it seemed to suit the subject.
For once I waited to photograph in dull overcast conditions, enabling me to capture the maximum detail and texture in the subject without the issues of glare. I waited until there was no wind before tripping the remote release shutter.
