Reunited and It Feels So Good

We received quite a bit of rain yesterday. After dinner the rain had stopped and the kids asked to go out and splash in the puddles. So I grabbed my camera and while the kids played, I snapped some photos of my two favorite subjects (besides my two kids of course)-raindrops and flowers.

It was a little dark out so I had my ISO set to 800. My macro lens is a little heavy so it takes a very steady hand when it is not very bright out. Anyway, all I can say is thank goodness for noise filters. I use the free community version of Noiseware and it has been a lifesaver for me.

The alien looking thing that I captured a couple of weeks ago finally bloomed. So pretty.

I know this one is pretty blurry, but I thought it was cool that a fly landed on the flower as I was taking the photo. Hey there, Mr. Fly.

I gave up on my macro lens and switched to my 50mm lens that I have to manually focus. At least these plants can't run away from me.

Only one of my blueberry bushes is blooming. I keep checking the other one hoping for a glimpse of life.

It felt good to be reunited with my camera even if it had only been a week.

Beautiful shots, Jen! I love them all so much, and you are definitely making me yearn for spring. We had a dusting of snow yesterday. :( It was nice last weekend, so spring keeps teasing us! I'm done with photographing inside my house. I need to get outside! :)

Dang Jen! These are flat out gorgeous! And, I've been whining for a mscro lens, but you going back to the 50 makes me think I need to re-evaluate!
