~ Spring Flowers in California ~
6

Borrowing from Rich's Post, Flowers and Rain, I made a compilation of my similar activities these last couple of months (also in California).

My theme was not raindrops, per se, but the bountiful (and early) display of some wonderful native flora that California can produce ... when it's well-hydrated

All of these photos were taken in natural light (overcast days), either before or after some welcomed rainfall.

This is also a series of lens experiments, utilizing different brands, different focal lengths, shot @ different apertures, just to explore the potential of each:

Sierra Gooseberry (Ribes roezlii), Nikon D850 + Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G

Sierra Gooseberry (Ribes roezlii), Nikon D500 + Irix 150mm f/2.8 Dragonfly 1:1

White-Flowered Currant (Ribes indecorum), Nikon Z7 + Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED + Kenko 36mm (.43x)

White-Flowered Currant (Ribes indecorum), Nikon 500 + Laowa 100mm f/2.8 Ultra Macro 2x APO
