One Wish * For Japan

I went out to my yard this morning and saw this dandelion, bedraggled and wet from the morning dew. One floret remained, and it was holding on to a perfect drop of water. In the drop, you can see my neighborhood, blue skies, and a flare from the shining sun!

My wish for the people of Japan, though in a desperate situation right now, is that they hold on to hope, are able to rebuild quickly and have blue skies and sun shining on them again soon.
A FAV!!!!! This is AMAZING! Very well spotted!!!!

Thanks everyone! This little guy was just glistening in the sun. My neighbors must have thought I was nuts laying on the wet grass. Ah, the things we all do!

Are you using a 50mm Macro lens?
posted March 20th, 2011  
I have a full set of Kenko macro tubes. I used my 50mm f/1.8 with one of the tubes...I don't remember, but maybe the 20mm one. A macro lens will probably be my next purchase, but for now the tubes are working well for me!
