A morning glory nearly submerged in our pond

I saw this morning glory blossom floating on the surface of our pond, but it wasn’t until I’d zoomed in close that I noticed the fine puckering of the water around its edges due to the surface tension. I was about to change lenses when I heard a rush of wind and the roar of rain coming in over the hill above our front field. I made it to cover just as the sky let loose. By the time the storm had passed, the blossom had been submerged.
