Rainy weather does make it challenging when it comes to photography, though. One common problem that occurs is condensation on the lens. On one hand it makes it hard to focus, but on the other hand it makes for some cool effects that don't require any kind of special equipment, making for some very soft, and sometimes surreal, photos, like this one of Foamflower:
The only modification I made was to bump up the contrast a little, but the glowing look is all thanks to condensation on my lens.
I was delighted to meet a number of people at the event who hail from the Athens area. What a small world it is!

More pictures to follow in a few days. Tomorrow I'll be prepping for my first volunteer naturalist's class!
