Day 117 - Raindrops

The good news is that the snow we were supposed to get turned out to be mostly rain instead. However, they're still saying we may get some overnight. Being the eternal optimist I choose to believe that the grass will still be green and not white when I wake up tomorrow morning. Due to the weather, full moon, grad pictures, announcements, trampoline in the gym and a bake sale the kids were rather excited today. Needless to say I didn't get the opportunity to take any pictures during the day. When we got home it was raining lightly so I headed out into the calm and snapped a few pictures. I ended up using all my 3 lenses (zoom, macro and 18-55mm) to see what I could get. I finally chose the one above. The lupin leaves were captured with the all-purpose 18-55mm lens. The other equipment I used was a plastic bag to kneel on, an umbrella and a handy assistant (Peg) to hold the umbrella and give me suggestions for angles. All in all, a much needed calming activity after a rather hectic day.

It's amazing how taking photos can take one to their "happy place"! I am curious which macro lens you're using with your Rebel XSi? I'd like to get one, but not sure which.
