I took these photos this morning while there was still some water drops left over from the watering last night.

Our strawberry plants are starting to develop the fruit.  The only problem I have with the strawberry plants is that we don’t have enough of them to get much fruit.  We probably will get a couple dozen strawberries the whole summer.

The poppy I was focusing on the center of the flower to get the stamens and used a shallow depth of field (f/5).  That made the petals of the flower very unfocused.

The water drop photo has been cropped quite a bit.  I wasn’t able to get as close as I would have liked with my tripod.

  1. That last photo is amazing, Maralee …. The single water drop lying in the leaf. Wonderful ! That beats most you have done lately and you have done loads of great shots.

      1. It’s very tricky with working with marco .. need a steady hand. Really miss my old camera, where able to go so close that I was nearly inside the flower. The wishlist starts to grow … *smile

  2. All great shots, the poppy seems to loose a bit of attraction with the blurred petals, clearly see the stamens, I think its the likeness in colour if it was more contrasting, not complaining I just love what you’re doing, just something about that photo I can’t put my finger on….The water droplet magnificent.. beyond words…

I'd love to hear from you
