Right After the Rain
Lens: 100mm F2.8 WR Camera: Pentax K-x ISO: 800

These were all taken just after one of the first rains all summer here. Though I know better than to try handholding 1:1 shots when the sky is overcast and it's already late at night, my 100mm WR just kept on telling me to get closer and closer as a result I only have like a 10% success rate out of my macros.

These water droplets were actually clinging onto a spiderweb, but I thought it looked awesome cause you can't really see the spiderweb till you're zoomed in, so it mostly looks like they're just suspended in midair.

I think this is my favorite one out of this series. Out of over a dozen shots of this branch or whatever, at various angles and distances, this is the one that ended up technically flawless (that I can see; incoming popped bubble about that?) and not horrible out of focus.

I like the first one. Its so simple and yet different. The next two pictures would have been better with the aperture stoped down a litle, F4 or F5,6 maybe.....

But i can imagine there wasnt light enough judging by your EXIF, kinda high on ISO to....
