Day 265 – 07/28/11 – Marigold

Flower week ends with what I believe to be a marigold.  This particular blossom plays host to an army of water droplets, and a tiny visitor as well.

    Very nice, was this shot taken in the morning or after it rained? I love the subtle water drops. I’ve been trying to get a natural picture like this myself, but haven’t been able to find the right type of water drops on the flowers I wanted to shoot. Good job!

      Thanks Tim, and thanks for stopping by! As for the shot, it was actually neither. It was taken in the late afternoon, and it hadn’t rained for several hours. I actually cheated, I carry a small spray bottle of water with me. It lets me get pretty much any type of water drops I want, depending on how hard and how much I spray. Very handy!
