Zoom in on raindrops

with frequent rain showers over recent weeks (although no flooding here) I frequently look out of my kitchen window to see the lovely sight of raindrops on roses cabbage


I'm amazed at the size of some of the drops that seem to balance on a slope.

I haven't actually eaten anything from this plant but I keep it because it was so nearly eaten away by slugs over the first few months that it was in the garden - I'm still glad to see it survived and flourished. A testament to tenacity!

Looking forward to seeing what others have zoomed in and out on this week

Oh, I love the zoomed-in shot! Raindrops make such beautiful subjects for photography. (I also love seeing green growing things and rain instead of snow!)

That zoomed in shot is fantastic Helena! I've done some like that myself and find them fascinating to photograph.

That's a great close-up - interesting how huge the raindrop looks! The resilience of plants is always cheering :).

Back with my link ... I feel I'm out of synch as these shots already feel old!! Maybe I've missed a week?
