Another Wet Day

Saturday, July 7th 2012

Yesterday's strength of flow from the streams was noticeable as it began to flow under the bridge.  Today after all the rain it was much more obvious.

Every stream running acrosss the moor was full.  Even the small ditches were full!

Given the conditions it was amazing to see so many micro moths flying, even if it was just from one sheltered place to another.  On the wetland the damselflies were hiding deep in the vegetation.  This one appeared to be very co-operative but it was difficult to get him in focus.  It was only when the photograph was downloaded that the reason became clear - he had a large rain drop on his face.

We are photographing Foxgloves so we have a collection to use for display.  It was suggested that a shot taken of the flowers against the sky would be good.  Here it is.

Would it be better with blue sky?
