08.03.2021 Dewdrops

After yesterday’s damselfly joy, I turned my attention to my original plan and that was to find more dewdrop compositions. I particularly liked this collection on a curving blade of Big Bluestem –Andropogon gerardii.  Although a prairie grass, it obviously likes our Brickyard Meadow and is a native New England grass.

I am not sure whether the vertical drops are on incomplete webbing or fine hairs which the grass does have in places where the blade joins the stalk.

    Very elegant. We have had massive raindrops today. All cold and none of them pretty!

  2. It’s interesting that the drops vary so much in size. The largest must contain a thousand times the volume of the smallest.

  4. Cool shot, Steve, with a wonderful composition. I love that fine line drawing my eye right up to that big drop with the reflections in it. And those little spikes, all nice!

    Love all the tiny details – from those in the bigger drops to the minute drops clinging to the lines of the spider web.

    I really enjoyed the dew-dropped spider silk. It’s interesting that even on the strands, there are differently sized drops. The series of five graduated drops on the stem is fun, too.

    • We’ve been having many cool nights and warm days so the dew production is going along at a great pace. Nice and heavy. I’ll get out more. As I mentioned to Steve, Nature’s Chaos operates without a plan or instructions so all those differences just happen and make for more interesting images. Those stem drops are fun and it is nice how they progressively get larger down the stem.
