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 as if the rose has umbrella-ed itself up to protect itself from the rain. 🙂

      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.
