Macro of raindrops on a Black Rose Aeonium (Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop')

Picture of the Moment—That counts as a selfie, yes?

It rained almost all day and night on March 10.

I usually dislike the rain, intensely, but now that I have a 90mm macro lens, I still dislike the rain, intensely.

However, since Mother & Father Nature don’t really listen to me when it comes to rain, well, I deal with it.

In this case, I went out to my cactus & succulent gardens and started taking macro pictures of raindrops on the little plants.

As I was taking pictures, I was singing “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.” I have the whiskers on kittens but I don’t have any roses. The police stopped and threatened to arrest me because I was singing “raindrops on roses” but didn’t have any roses. Who knew?

Ha!

I was standing over a “black rose aeonium” (Aeonium arboreum ‘Swartkop’) with little raindrops on the leafies. As soon as I said “rose,” the rose police backed off and apologized.

Here’s the macro picture I got:

I like how the little raindrops act as magnifying glasses, and if you look very closely at the bottom of the largest raindrop at the front, you can see me with my digital camera in my face. That counts as a selfie, yes?

Friday Flower Fiesta (4-11-14) from Fine Art America

Friday Flower Fiesta

I have been uploading pictures by the dozens to my Fine Art America galleries in preparation for being an approved vendor at the fundraiser May 3 for Cat House on the Kings.

Knowing that flowers are popular at all times of the year with many people, those have been on my priority list for uploading.

I thought I’d share a few of them here in our Friday Flower Fiesta for April 11, 2014, which happens to be my 709th monthabirthday.
