Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the photos I had taken waiting for various birds and mammals to make an appearance in front of the lens.

The following shots were taken in our yard in 2018 when I was doing my 52 week photo project.

I noticed the way a beam of light was illuminating a patch of Maple leaves.

I set up in the yard to photograph birds in the rain. When the birds weren’t cooperating I photographed rain drops.

Simplicity.

Lying in the grass I photographed a Clover flower while waiting for a bird or mammal to appear.

The new A Photo a Week Challenge is Raindrops.

I had a few ideas for the challenge and decided to go with a small selection of raindrop photos.
