Gaillardia Drop

Gaillardia Drop

Gaillardia Drop, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

The day was moist with sudden rain squalls followed by brief, intermittent periods of sunshine. In one of the times without rain I went out into the strangely moist world of my garden.

Staring down at the spider web strategically located above a Gaillardia bud, I saw the blossom perfactly framed in water drop. I ran inside to get my tripod and macro lens. Kit in hand, I framed the photo, locked my mirror up, and snapped the shot.

Next thing, it was raining again and I retreated inside before the incoming Pacific squall.
