Dreary day

This past Sunday was a dreary day - cloudy, very cool, and rainy.  I captured a bunch of shots this day and you'll see move in the very near future, but this one I had to post 'straight away'.

Some cool water droplets on the face of a pansy.  That lovely background is my lawn :-)

Canon EF 100mm f2.8 USM Macro lens
Exposure 1/60 sec @ 7.1

Beautiful shot of these crying pansies, looking great against that 'perfectly mowed' lawn...;-)

My kind of photo... as in "I like it very much."

love the purple and green together, too - great colors! The water drops add a lot, too - great shot!

I love the way the green background is accented by the green on the flower ... and the way the raindrops add to the mystique of a cloudy, rainy day!

I'd like to jump into that pink and green world, it's so tempting!

I take it you were a swimmer back in the day?
