Love of Raindrops Macros

maui bug on bloom

Between breaks in a storm or after a spring rain, I enjoy walking around and using whatever light is available to capture the gleaming drops on leaves and petals, spider webs and even pavement. I love the way that the droplets mirror things around them, sky and even me sometimes.

I don't always have my favorite body and lens combination handy when taking macros of water droplets; I use whatever I have handy. My favorite is currently the Canon 5dMk II with the 100mm f2.8 macro, but I get nice macros from the G9 still.

If you like raindrops, comment about that won't you?
