After seeing several other bloggers’ great raindrop photos, I was happy when we had some showers here and I was able to grab a few droplet-covered shots of my own.
I was excited because I was actually able to get pretty close and stay in focus on this flower.
I didn't realize until I was looking at the photo later, but you can see all the moisture in the center of the flower as well as on the petals.
I love this angle 🙂
This flower wasn't as cooperative as the pink one.
One lone raindrop
I thought this was a pretty cool shot.
The rain brought out some visitors.
My favorite photo of the day! I spent several minutes trying to figure out if this little guy was real (it was). It was about as long as my thumbnail.

Yep, I’m still playing around with my newfound love of macro shots. I’ve got a few clouds to throw into the mix this time, though.
Clouds roll in over the office
I loved the way the edges blurred on this, but the center stayed in focus.
These gorgeous pink flowers are growing between my driveway and my neighbor's.
This little guy flew in as I was taking photo of the yellow flowers, I love that the yellow on him matches the flower.
My mom is growing this fuzzy-leafed plan in our backyard.
More neat leaves from the backyard garden
At least we have one good cucumber...
This poor flower was all alone when I photographed it, but it's got some buddies by now.
My grandfather always called my grandmother his yellow Irish rose.
The clear blue skies everywhere else made this perfect anvil cloud that much more dramatic.
This is how the anvil cloud started.
My new zoom can even capture the moon during the day!
Sometimes it seems like I'm tied to this thing...
