Great rain action, Wendy. Must have been a pretty heavy rain given the length of the drops at 1/80th of a second. How did you keep the camera dry? No matter what, it is a super composition. #911515

...and Marjorie...they were over 2 feet tall and said "Gladiolas" on the packaging from whence they I have to believe them to be what they claimed to be! :o) But the tops, which is all you see, do resemble snap dragons! Thanks again everyone! #978761
