Jewels of rain on cotoneaster

Jewels of rain on cotoneaster

It’s sunny again today, but I have too many photos of rain effects from the last few days not to use one more.

The water on the cotoneaster leaf was just a shine to start with, then it gradually swelled into a translucent green marble. I caught it seconds before it elongated and fell.

The berries are washed shiny bright. Some of them carry an individual droplet cradled underneath them.

The undersides of the leaves are sprinkled with tiny diamonds to form a bead setting for the centre emerald.
