Rain rain go away



After staying in all morning and afternoon due to rain, again... by the time it got to tea-time (5pm) I thought to myself, 'that's it, i'm fed up, i'm off out down the hide' . I hate staying in on Sundays.. so after a boring day, I made my way to Thornley Woods.
2 hours later and not a deer or fox in sight, only one Jay came out in the rain. I saw a bee flying round a foxglove and so decided to take a few shots. This one seems to be the best of the bunch. A bit noisy as the light was bad but still not bad.

Do you know what, Carol? I LOVE the rain picture!!!

The color of that yellow flower behind that glass full of rain drops - it makes your story perfect about a rainy Sunday afternoon. You captured the right moment! I LOVE it!

Thankyou Jenty and Andre

Sue I wasn't really thinking about that at the time just saw the rain outside and the lovely colour outside of the flower and took the picture. But you are right it does tell a story.
