Details:
California was hit by a strong drought, but the last winter was different. We got El Nino weather pattern and it produced rains. Even today, in May, its a rainy day in San Francisco. Rain or rather rain droplets provide some interesting photo opportunities because they act as inverting lenses. Today I photographed a flower refracting in rain droplets, and few weeks ago I took pictures of Golden Gate Bridge refracting from rain droplets on my cars windshield. Heres a video https://youtu.be/-4A9VU6u1do The fly at the last image is not in a droplet, and thats why its orientation is normal. The Bridge and the flower are upside down.
