There is just nothing to compare with the patterns and colors in nature.

I am by no means a flower expert so bear with me when I say that I think the last picture is an orchid...if I am wrong...let me know. Whatever the names of the flowers and plants...the colors caught my eye. The first image was truly serendipitous for me. As I was focusing on the pistil...a drop of rain settled on the leaf above and completed the picture for me! These only remind me of spring and the coming season of rebirth. I can't wait.

My mother was the plant, shrub, flower and tree expert, Dan...I'm not :)

But...I do like that first shot, very much, too.

Love capturing the droplets.

the diversity of trees and plants in nature is truly amazing. xo ♡

So beautiful! Each one of the photos is extraordinary in their own ways.

Beautiful work. Are you using a macro lens? As I looked at these photos I thought about the way it must look to a ladybug,or a grasshopper. Underneath a covering, protection from the rain. A droplet not just a droplet, but a day's supply of sustenance or for a gnat, perhaps their bath??

Just Me...thank you for stopping by and welcome aboard! I like your description of the water droplet...you are right...It really would be much more to a ladybug than just a drop of water!

Thanks for asking about my Autumn Dan, not so much a chill in the air but a definite feeling that the cooler weather will soon be upon us. Today was perfect, a beautful clear blue sky, sunshine, a little breeze that swirled around and yes some of the leaves are starting to change colour, not as dramatic as your Northern Hemisphere trees just subtle colour changes. xoxo ♡

Dianne...I don't know if you will pick this up..it is a couple of days after the post. I substitute teach and I had a student ask me today if it snows in Australia??? This may sound incredibly dumb but does it get cold enough to snow? Pardon my stupidity!
