Real Life: Dew

September 29, 2009 § 10 Comments




I got so thirsty while shooting the morning dew
that I had to go indoors for a drink.

How much better it would have been to lap it from a leaf
or a stem
like the other critters do.

    Love your close-up shots, oh… every single waterdrop!

  • Andi says:

    Beautiful stuff, madame!

    Nominated you for a blog award – check out my page. . . Yeah!

  • ds says:

    Beautiful–the droplets and the words!

  • lol, I can just imagine the neigbours looking over the fence and seeing you licking the greenery 🙂 Your right though, looks so fresh. These pics are really beautiful.

  • Ruth says:

    Oh I love this! I have been there done that so many times, and well, maybe those little drops might not quite satiate the thirst of us women. Maybe if we were spiders . . .

  • Nora says:

    the second one is my favorite picture!

    Arti – as the weather turns here, I went a little nuts in the garden last sunday taking pictures before all the greenery is tucked away for the winter. so many had dew on them. It was interesting to read your comments on the uses of cameras. It’s funny. no matter what we photograph, it just isn’t like what the eyes sees, at least not generally.

    Andi – I must check out your page and will over asap. Projects at work and deadlines for writing – egads – I’ve barely been out and about in Blogland! Thanks!

    DS – thanks for stopping by … it seems i have many flower pictures and must resist posting them. Kids tease me all the time about it. Take people pictures they say. tsk tsk.

    Scarlet – you’re right – what would the neighbors think?!!! I remember seeing something like it in the movie THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY, on how they collected enough dew for drinking water…

    Ruth, I have rarely ever seen an insect getting a drink, come to think of it. There are some who divebomb the pool in the summer and get snagged (we save them if we see them) and I’ve seen the wasps hover in the mist of the front yard sprinkler, but wouldn’t that be a cool picture to catch a spider in or on a droplet of water?

    Nora – Actually, i woulnd’t have predicted that choice, might have thought you’d go for the big flopppy white moon flower! Which we have to look at tonight, by the way! More should blossom!

    I’ve always liked the vulnerability of dewdrops. Despite their transience they hold the reflection of a whole world. One of our fellow writers found a lesson there:

    “Words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling like dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron

    Beautiful pictures, as always! You must be sitting there, absolutely mesmerised and enjoying it. Don’t know how you do it, but really delightful!

    Totally stunning. Totally.
