Raindrops on roses #3

A familiar subject and one I’ve ‘done’ a couple of times before.

This image is different to the others, but as I’ve said before, don’t expect whiskers on kittens any time soon.

Wait! Cucumbers Have Flowers?

Not that I’ve ever given the matter much thought, but I was genuinely surprised to see that the cucumber plants in our serre were flowering.

Although since they’re planted next to the courgettes, which even I know have flowers, I really ought to have realised.

To be honest, I was just attracted by the water drops.

With an exposure of only 1/2000 of a second, this detail of a water feature in Sydney hardly looks liquid at all.

Macro Moments: Week 37 – Water

This unfolding tulip was in a floral display in the town of Confolens that I happened on just after it had rained. As we’re not looking for bokeh this time, I’ve eliminated any background distractions during the editing process.

(I posted a black & white image of the next tulip along as a contribution to Cee’s current Black & White Challenge.)
