I had a good day today. I feel like I accomplished a lot with the projects for which I was responsible. I haven't carried the camera with me for TWO days!!


It was raining the other night, but the light shone in such a way, that I happened to notice a bug under a leaf. I went inside for the flashlight and a camera. The original bug was gone, and there were two flies in the area, but they didn't hold still long enough for me. It was raining on me (and my camera), so I didn't want to stay out there too long. The raindrop here was much more cooperative. I took a quick picture, and then the clouds opened up all the way. It's good that I was close to a nice, dry change of clothes.

Too bad you missed the bugs, but the water drop is great. Try to stay dry Craver.

Nice pic.

"He covers the heavens with clouds;
he prepares rain for the earth;
he makes grass grow on the hills." Ps. 147:8

Our Father sent that rain drop to you.
All the water God put on this earth is the exact amount He always had in mind, each and every drop.

I like water shots Craver, you did well my friend.
Getting wet is a photographers dream when you find a drop like yours.lol.

Oh believe me Gaelyn, the water was most welcome on a scorcher of a day. The cool wetness was just what I needed.

Thanks Bird Girl. I think I will try to catch drops in mid-air again. I did that with an old camera, but not with this one.

Guess what Sandman? I originally considered putting a verse with this picture instead of my own blabbing. I wish I had not been lazy, and that I had found that verse. It's perfect!

Speaking of getting wet Imac, the current issue of Popular Photography has one nature photographer using waders to get closer to his shots. That's not part of my gear... yet. :-)

I am sure the rain was welcome but you could have gone to find the bug in the rain or are you scared you melt? LOL!!

oh i do love that shot. so much green and lush and anticipation all held in that little droplet.

It's the heat lately that could make me melt. I was fine with the rain on me Joan, but the rain on my camera is a whole other matter. Besides, the mosquitoes were sucking my veins dry.

You are too generous, Lime. I look at that picture, and it is so grainy, that if feels like sandpaper on my eyes. But like you, when I see rain drops hanging like this, I soak in all that rich potential.
