Dark clouds

Its the rainy season again. Despite all the climate changes and erratic weather conditions elsewhere, its good to know that the North-east monsoon decided to show up in a timely fashion. Actually the "rainy season" is just a relative term. Singapore is always rainy. But during this period, rain can last 2 to 3 days. Rot and fungus can do a lot of damage to plants during this time.
The foreground shows a tiny unknown species of Dendrobium orchid from Indo-China - the bunch of flower heads are smaller than a 5-cent coin. I shone my torch on the flowers to bounce off some colours from an otherwise monochromatic theme.
