The rain drops on the two photos of cactus spines are beyond fabulous.
I have a photo of raindrops on a prickley pear that is my favorite.
Have wonderful weekend.
Below freezing tonight. It is too early for that !

Wow, a vermilion flycatcher! I've only ever seen one at Hassayampa River Preserve and I didn't have a very long lens then so my shot isn't very good. Yours is lovely. Happy New Year!
