It’s great to photograph flowers when it’s overcast since you don’t get those nasty hard shadows. And I love the natural raindrops sitting on the petals. I have been known to create my own raindrops by using a spritzer! Photographers all know a few tricks and if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate then you have to do what you have to do.

These were all taken with my trusty (but getting old) Nikon D90 using a Micro Nikkor 40mm f2.8 lens. The lens is incredibly cheap and incredibly good! That doesn’t happen very often. I was feeling a bit lazy so I didn’t break out the tripod for these–they are all handheld photos.
