To those of you who know we moved to Arizona over a year ago, it will be obvious that this shot was NOT since that move but taken back in Illinois a few years ago. This might be the entire number of drops in one rain here…and I’m not really joking. Sometimes our “rain” is just a smattering of drops so scant that I could almost count them. But no matter, just enjoy the plethora of drops that makes this bit of plant and spiderweb appear to be wearing a shawl of diamonds.

    Spider webs covered in raindrops or frost are always spectacular, but this one is quite different, it looks like a chandelier with those huge droplets hanging down at the ends. Well spotted Janet and beautifully photographed.

  3. You get 2 ‘stunnings’ for this shot. Wow, Janet, that is beautiful on so many fronts. Great photography. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  4. Wow, that is amazing!

  5. Just absolutely gorgeous. We are expecting a summer storm to arrive tonight. When I lived in Las Vegas, I understood high temperatures and no rain or if it rained it flooded
