I was wandering near Lake Travis on July 19 and noticed a few scattered dayflowers, Commelina erecta. This view from somewhat below makes clear that in addition to the two conspicuous blue petals, each dayflower has a pale and smaller third petal. Centered beneath the blue petals, it often gets overlooked, but now you get to look it over.
For those of you who are interested in photography as a craft, points 1, 3 and especially 4 and 8 in About My Techniques are relevant to this photograph.
