Friday flowers…when there was water

Scrolling through some photo files from a few years ago, I came across this photo taken in Illinois where water is generally abundant. I’m not likely to get many dew/raindrop photos in Arizona, but I also wouldn’t be getting spoonbill or cacti shots if we were still in Illinois. πŸ™‚ This is a close-up with a telephoto lens, meaning I had to stand about 6′ away. When I took my Nikon, I didn’t always want to carry extra lenses. Needs must.

    Beautiful and so delicate looking with the water droplets.

    • Hi, Peggy. I’m glad you liked the shot and I hope your weekend goes wonderfully. We’re heading for Mt. Lemmon tomorrow and the drive up the mountain is supposed to be quite beautiful. I’m sure you’ll see photos. πŸ™‚

    The details are really lovely – nice photo!

  3. Dan Antion says:

    That’s a beautiful photo!

  4. Ally Bean says:

    Cool. Love the sparkly-ness.

  5. I love the close-up drops and colors! Needs must!

    Isn’t it wonderful to be experiencing something totally different now though? There is nothing better than finding something new and photographing that experience…en mon avis and those that get that once in a lifetime chance are truly blessed! You’ve been blessed a million times and we who follow your blog and see your images… are blessed a bazillion times!

    • As “they” say, Deborah, “It’s all good.” Beauty is found in many places and in many different forms. It’s fun to go back and appreciate some of the ones from “the older days” and then do the same for what I have now.

      Today we visited Mt. Lemmon near Tucson and I was thrilled to get to a real mountain environment again (there’s skiing at the top in winter) and even catch a few aspen changing their leaf colors. Yes, you’ll be seeing what I saw in upcoming blogs. It does make me happy to know how much you enjoy the blog and I feel the same about yours. πŸ™‚

  6. Lovely shot. We’re actually getting a second day this week of much needed rain, and for that I’m sincerely grateful. πŸ™‚
