What an Awesome Day

Today was one of those stellar days. This morning the dew was just spectacular. Above is not actually dew. It's the nymph of a meadow spittle bug. He's covered in bubbles to hide him from predators. He's on a goatsbeard plant, so I'm not losing any sleep over his presence.

Below is a fly hanging on a dew covered leaf. He's covered in dew which is just too cool. I can't tell if he's drinking it up, staying cool or waiting for breakfast. And then there's the last photo...

This is a couple of petals from a sticky geranium flower that have fallen on it's leaves. The contrast in color from the pedals and leaves along with the contrast in texture from the dew is just amazing.
