Rainy Days Mean More Rain Drops.
We got some much needed rain these past few days here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. We got some thunderstorms Sunday followed by two days of light, but steady rain.
The rain didn’t stop me from getting my hiking in. Yesterday I took a short hike out the local railroad tracks during a break in the rain. Not many critters stirring at the small ponds near the tracks. Not a dragonfly, bee or butterfly in the air. However, the ponds themselves were crowded with many species of tadpoles of all sizes. I managed to get a photograph of this one.
I also found a few duck flowers still in bloom. It wasn’t the nicest day but still so much to see, even on an overcast and rainy day, if you just keep your eyes peeled. Here is a link to some more photographs I took on yesterday’s hike. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/railroad-and-pond-hike-june-1-2015
It was another rainy day today. I still got my walking in and took my camera and macro lens for a short walk in the afternoon. A lot of new flowers are now in bloom including the irises, peonies and daisies.
It still amazes me to see the beauty of the rain drops on the leaves and flowers through my macro lens. There is so much beauty, big and small, in the natural world, even on cloudy and rainy day.
Here is a link to some more of the photos I took this afternoon. 5https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/rainy-day-macro-walk-june-1-2015
