Beaded Pleasure

     There has been an excessive amount of rain this year, not only in Michigan, but still more than I want during a summer. There are counties around our state that are under water more than I expected. Driveways are impassable unless you own a high clearance vehicle, yards are not being mowed and fields with soy bean and corn seedlings are visible only with polarized glasses. Ruined crops and deteriorating roads are a common subject right now. This photo was captured before any of this happened, when Spring was new and the snow had finally melted. The greenery is making more of a presence and it is welcomed.

 

     Waiting for the storm season to approach was still an anticipated event, but these gentle showers that leave these water beads are a good appetizer. Getting one up close is fun, as it turns the world upside down. I noticed this leaf as I was leaving to take my son to school. Not left with a lot of time, I loaded into the car and left. After dropping him off, I returned home with about 15 minutes left before I would have to leave again. 

 

     I used the smallest camera in my bag with the best magnification. My point and shoot really brought out the tiny pearls with all of the greenery trapped within them. They sure decorated this little leaf, and made it stand out more than any other in the garden. I haven't seen another set of leaves with droplets on their points since, as the water now beads on top of the leaf. This was a spectacular view to me, and captured for future enjoyment. Thank you.
