Not having a lot of time this month for 'hobby' photos, i was happy to have a free half hour before work today to capture the aftermath of some early morning rain. I used the macro and am really happy with how they came out and selected a few of these shots for the March Challenge with my photography group. The sun was still coming up, so the lighting and the water all over the plants was perfect!
If you can't tell, that is a dandelion that was soaked with rain water. so lovely.
This is a droplet on some chives that have started to grow (spring will prevail!) I am actually shocked with how clear this came out. It was hard to balance myself and the camera without getting wet.
I know, clearly i am not committed to the craft, right? :)
Anyway, its hard to use the mac after a while, my eyes get tired... i think i must concentrate too hard without blinking to get some of these shots. This was the end of the mini-shoot. so, not bad.
Ap: f 3 Speed: 1/2500 sec, ISO 800, FL:105mm
Here we have a tuft of wild onion. S hates them because they grow faster than the grass and make the lawn look bad, but i love them. The blue-green color and curly leaves are just fun to capture.

And a close up of one of the onion leaves covered in droplets. Love it!
Cheers to spring, it can't get here soon enough!
