Umbrella, wide-brim hat, yoga mat, water-resistant camera case, and a rainy day. Now and then the sky would lighten and make interesting highlights on the wet flowers. I crawled along the garden paths for five hours getting a few pictures I really like. It was plenty fun just spying on the frogs, praying mantis, watching the lotus leaves spill the rain out, and talking to the park ranger. Rainy day fun!
