Raindrops on rose buds

It’s gonna bee a bright, bright, bright sunshiney day!


At dawn, there was a sharp heavy downpour, which cleared quickly, followed by a bright blue sky, fresh, not a breath of wind. Out on the early morning dog walk, I noticed that the raindrops had stayed fat and heavy on the flowers and foliage – plus the sun was now glinting off and through them. Dog walk cut short, I dashed back for the camera, this time not anticipating much in the way of bee shots, but potential for trying something new with the sparkling rain drops.

I am liking the general idea of some of these shots – especially this one below of the raindrop with my house upside down, but am thinking some of them should be marked ‘Could Do Better’. I hope you still think that they are worth posting!

    • Thanks – its hard to tell what has been captured until the images are downloaded onto the computer. I was pleasantly surprised by that upside-own house image – and tried immediately to get a sharper shot with more of the house in the drop. The second attempt was in some ways better, but a pesky leaf got in the way. Have tied a ribbon round that branch – hoping to try again should we get the same conditions. It doesnt seem to work when I drop tap water onto the leaves – shall have to wait patiently.

    • Hi Magic, I can see you are picking up the Detectiving business very quickly.You are indeed correct – Dallas is my Mum and Andy is my Dad – she likes it when I say that she is my favourite, but really I love them equally.’Apicultrice’ is french for female beekeeper – Dallas has just played around with the word, as is her wont. Not much action from the bees right now – too cold.Just back from visiting Gibsy – too soon to know if she is expecting. Blog
