It has rained for two straight days here in most parts of England, and there has been little respite from the cold and the wet.
However, this evening – just before the sun went down – the rain let off for a few minutes, allowing most dog owners to give their pets a small window of opportunity to relieve themselves.
While I was out there, I noticed some very interesting raindrop patterns on the plants, so I went back in and retrieved my camera.
I noticed a few Ladybirds and tried to capture them, but the light was too dull for a clear picture without a tripod. And then I remembered my camera has a flash – something I haven’t used since I bought it! Not the easiest thing to use with a macro in dim light, but it showed some great soggy insects.
So, while I said I wouldn’t portray the same bug more than once for this challenge, I think I can be forgiven for revisiting some very wet versions of Ladybirds and (I think) a Hoverfly.
