Make up your mind already

I really wish the weather would make up it's mind. First it's unseasonably warm then it's cold. We've had sunshine,, rain and snow all within the last couple weeks. Temperatures have been as low as the 30's and as high as the 80's.
Sunday after the rain I stepped outside with my camera.

The water drops were what caught my attention first and the lady bug was a bonus.

Oh man!!! These are my favorite of any pictures you have posted. The detail on the ladybug, and she is so wet and shiny and beautiful!!! They are so hard to snap, I have tried for years and only recently got a good one.

i have only seen lady bugs here once in 28 years. and they turned out to be some kind of pest lady bug. not like this one. great shot of her and the droplets i love. maybe she was bathing in one droplet and drinking frm another.

Awesome photos!
It's really cold and windy over here. Hopefully we will get some sun at the weekend *fingers crossed*

Yep, our temps have gone from the middle 70s down to the lower 30s up to the high 80s back down to the low 40s. Maybe this is the reason why I have been feeling extraordinarily dizzy lately?

You had rain? YOU HAD RAIN???? You lucky duck. I don't recall our last rain but it's supposed to be on the horizon for tomorrow.. Great ladybug photo!!

We're having the same weather without the snow. It rained and rained and there was thunder and lightening to beat the band and then on Saturday it cleared up but was still chilly. It's finally warming up and it looks like by the weekend we'll be in the 80s. I like that.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Gorgeous photos! I love macro water detail like that. The weather has been all over the place this way, too.

Nice macro, that water can really add a nice touch.

Ann that macro is fantastic and what a treat to have captured the little ladybug. I love it! Great photography.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Bet the Ladybug is wondering what is 'up' when it comes to the weather too...

We are cold again --and we have a fire in the fireplace tonight... Goodness!!!!

When I was living in the Hudson Valley, we had an infestation of Lady Bugs. They weren't so cute then! lol

Anne said...

The ladybug looks so happy. Apparently she wanted to rain.

Hello!

What wonderful photos! Absolutely perfection! You must have a great camera to capture such detail - in addition to your skill! I love these so much! Wishing you a happy day with sunshine!

Hugs,
