Macro photography – Raindrops, but not on roses

I live in my own little world

The fact that San Diego gets about eleven inches of rain each year is one of the reasons why I moved here in April 1993 from Texas, where eleven inches of rain sometimes was an afternoon thunderstorm.

Here in the East San Diego County boondocks, though, we get a little more rain. In fact, over two days in February this year, my rain gauge indicated that we got nine inches of rain. Certainly haven’t had to deal with that in 25 years.

There are only two good things about rain: my plants love it, and I love taking macro pictures of raindrops on those plants. Following are ten macro raindrop pictures from February 2018. The first picture won first place in the Photography category at the June 2018 show of the San Diego Cactus & Succulent Society. The last one (remember, there are ten pictures) might not be safe for work.
