Water Droplets

After a heavy rain I sometimes head for the garden to try and get pictures of water droplets.  These are a few of my attempts from two weeks ago.

Some plants hold the water droplets much better than other plants.  In fact in many cases you can't find noticeable droplets.  Day Lily leaves and those of similar plants seem to be the best - and we have quite a few Day Lilies.



Day Lily blossoms don't do too badly at holding water droplets either.


And here's an individual water drop, dripping off the petal of a Helenium blossom.  Busy day today after church, doing yard work, while my wife made peach jam, canned peaches, and peach syrup!  We're all done in.

  1. These photos show me why it rains in the bush for two days after a rain.

  2. I like the bent leaf with the water drops. We have had lots of rain here too but it does not let up enough to capture the droplets.

  8. Beautiful, specially on the deep burgundy day lily. Yes, a very long way for one metre of fabric, but after I took into account the petrol!!! was very frugal, is that the word? I so love batiks, and could easily have a bolt of every one. I do have a good collection here, but not the right ones for the wiggle quilt. Does Mrs F.G. have a great stash of fabric too? And, naturally, only a quilter or a quilter's husband would think ... only 1 metre of fabric!!!

  10. These are all beautiful photos of water droplets. A subject I enjoy. I like the last photo with the big drop. It's always interesting to see what is reflected in one. Happy September!

    It's amazing how much interest a few drops of water add to a photo, isn't it?
