Enduring the Rain

We have had cool rainy weather here for at least four days.  It is getting pretty old.  This afternoon the rain quit for a while and the sun came out, but it was still cool.  I walked around a little with my camera.  I photographed the wet lichens on a tree trunk.


I did not see the springtail until after I uploaded the picture onto my computer.


It is hard to notice the flowers blooming when we see constant rain.  This is dame’s rocket, an alien weed that is often included in wildflower mixes.

I did not get my recommended daily amount of macro photography, but I did at least get the knees of my jeans wet.
