Camera-Critters #108

It was a rainy day. Seriously. It rained, and it rained, and it continued to rain some more. Thankfully, I was at work during all this rain. So, it didn't really bother me, because the rain wasn't causing me to miss out on anything I was going to have the chance to enjoy. Then, it was time to go home from work. Now, it would be reallly nice if it would stop raining. My wish came true, and when I pulled in my driveway at home, I got out of the vehicle and looked at our yard, and I immediately went and grabbed the camera out of the passenger seat... yeah, my camera has its own seat... maybe I DO buckle it in with the seat belt so it's safe, and maybe I don't... what's it to ya?

Anyway, as I was saying... are you listening? Or, are you thinking about bpi training? C'mon now. As I was saying... I grabbed my camera, because I wanted to capture the raindrops on the dandelions. It looked really awesome. There will be another photo and post to come soon, but first, I wanted to show you my unexpected friend, whom I met that day. Yeah, we became quite close. ;-)

I strongly suggest clicking on the photo
to view it larger - it's worth it.

Very cool! Enlarged is fabulous ~~ love the droplet and the fly. I posted a fly Macro yesterday :)


Great shot. Love it


I don't think I have ever paid attention to the dandelion seed pods getting wet -
What a wonderful capture!


Absolutely gorgeous ... irridescent fly, wonderful droplets on the dandelion... wonderful!


That little Dandelioan puff really had me fooled till I clicked it larger! It looked all flower like wet and the buzzy fly-too cool!
good end of a day including bpi training, I think!

The fly looks like it using a petal for a headress. Good Photo. Valerie


Wonderful shot, Misty!


Wow, fantastic photo :)


What a beautiful capture! . . . but bpi training - what? Most valuable, I'm sure, but never to be compared with what you saw, though maybe to be learnt from. (Sorry, it's Saturday evening and I'm *relaxed* :-0)

Don't tell your friend, but I'm not fond of flies. Great photo, though!


Yep, definitely worth it! Gorgeous, Misty.

Of course, I like your new friend best when he stays outside where he belongs.

I love it when you capture an insect on a flower you're photographing - a bonus.

Dawn great capture and detail. Love the colors on the critter.


this is a fab fab shot, the dark colour of the insect against the whiteness of the flower is just fabulous.
