Sunday is becoming my prime snapping day and this week was no exception. First I saw this skittish softie outside the family room window.
Then I noticed that the conditions on the back deck were prime for more droplet photos. I took a gazillion, got about 100 I was tickled with, and edited it all down to a small handful that made me very happy. Rather than simply trying to catch the drops as they fell, this time I was interested in pushing my limits in two directions. The first was to capture reflections in the drops and the other was to create truly abstract shots that worked with this week's prompt. Here are three of the shots I really liked.

Mmmmm. The prompt this week was soft and yet I've got a woodpecker and a parrot beak. Ooops. I took so many soft shots that didn't make the cut. I think I need to round out this post with a nod to the prompt from the runners-up.

Sin Kitten, er, bunny
"Soft" was fun but kinda mushy. This week's prompt: direction
