Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. Remember you can click on each image to see it in a larger format.

Last week, it rained. For two days. On and off, but mostly on. You may think rain isn’t a big deal, but when you live in San Diego, rain in May is a rare occurrence. It will probably be the last rain we get until next November so I tried to enjoy every raindrop, even though I hate walking or driving in the rain.

After the rain stopped, I took a few photos of the leftover raindrops on yellow roses. It’s amazing how such big raindrops can remain attached to the rose petals, defying gravity.

I love the patterns these raindrops form on each rose petal.

This is the same yellow rose as above, but photographed from a different angle. It’s interesting to see how the raindrops reflect the light and surroundings differently.

    • It’s interesting how plants work. Our skin can absorb a lot of water but plants seem to only absorb water through the roots and the rest looks very waterproof.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
