April Showers....

We've been getting a lot of rain lately, the sun is out right now but more rain is on the way later today. It rained Thursday night but it had stopped by Friday morning so I went out and photographed the droplet covered pussywillows. The yellowish background is actually dead grass that was on the ground. When you enlarged the photo you'll notice a squarish, bright spot on the dark area on the underside of the pussywillow. That's a reflection of my foil fill card adding light.

This is a great shot... I really like how the pussywillow really jumps out from the brown background.

to see the world in a grain of sand (as Blake said), or, in this case, in a drop of water
