Button grass at Mini Haha Falls.  Took this lying on my back in the wet grass one morning.  Just after the sun broke the ridge line and flooded the valley bellow.  It's in my one of my talks about composition as it illustrates how repeated elements strengthen photographs.  Here the repeating elements are the black and white dots.
