Raindrops on Roses, and Lupine, and Thickets

Oh, I want rain I want rain I want rain. California "endless summers" are not all they're cut out to be (or however the saying goes).
Your blogs are like receiving a new copy of National Geographic. You don't know what it's going to be about, but you know that it's going to be good, and the photographs.....wow!

I second John. I my case, it's like receiving the Strad magazine.
Absolutely gorgeous! I love closeups of nature. I especially like the ones where the raindrop acts as a magnifying glass. What's the name of your camera again?
John, well said.
Great photos as always, the mushroom/toadstool shot is definitely my personal favourite, such fantastic detail...
Next photo project - some bear pics perhaps? I wish we had exciting wildlife in our part of the world!
I love the toadstool photo. It makes me feel like I'm Alice in Wonderland. Your photos brought a nice cool feeling to a hot dusty day. Thanks.
The toadstool photo is full of diabolical faces, especially the dark area at the bottom. That always makes a compelling photo, psychologically similar to subliminal components of advertising photography. Great point of view too!
There's a Meatyard photo I love that's of a thicket, which is nothing but those faces, unbelieveably thick with them. If you look closely, there are a couple of models in there with sad masks on, posed with frightened body language. Great stuff.
The toadstool is my favorite, too. I'd never been tempted to pinch off a bit of the underside of a mushroom until I took that photo.
Rosalind, I specialize in low-risk photography; bears are out of the question--that is, unless they are dancing bears.
