I Love Surprises!

I love a surprise rain shower, especially when Texas is in a severe drought.  I also love the surprise guests that show up in the yard and allow me to take photographs of them.

Sometimes it's the simple things that surprise us the most.

Rain drops on the nandina bushes.  You can see the reflection of the green shutters in one of the drops.

I have a new treehouse guest in the backyard.

This little dickens would barely stay long enough to take his portrait.


  1. Rebecca, what camera/lens are you using? The rain drops on the vegetation is beautiful.

  2. Wendy, Thanks so much! I am new to blogging and photograpy, so not quite sure the correct method for responding to posts. I have a Nikon Coolpix L100. No special lens, just using the macro feature. Rebecca

  3. Your macro worked really great. The rain drops are very cool looking.


I would love for you to leave me a comment...Rebecca
