In The Rain

It has been raining cats and dogs recently, and will continue for months if the forecast is accurate; nevertheless I hardly believe this is a good enough reason to stop me from going hiking. It will never refuse me to take more photographs as well.

But then, this was not a simple task in last Sunday when my left hand was busy holding an umbrella, right hand maneuvering a camera, left eye being squeezed against a small viewfinder window, and body being bent forward for a close-up. Of course, I ended up busy for nothing.

But then, an ant kept rubbing its eyes in the rain, that I could not verify, and that attracted me a lot.

This was one of those days that I had gone gaga. Did you ever feel like withdrawing a gun when removing your camera for any sudden spotted target?

A fool might do.

I appreciate all you go through to get your wonderful pictures. I hope you will continue to shoot in the rain -- just don't get your camera soaked!

I was afraid that my camera might get soaked, and it was too difficult to take pictures under such a difficult condition.

*sigh*

Have to give up.

Do people in Penang eat ants?

Whether or not the forecast is true, shoot till the end of the world!

WOW, I never thought that my birdies would think I was pulling a gun on them . No wonder they all fly away. I love your wet photo, Rainfield.

Hi! Remember to harvest mulberries only when they turn black. How come there are lots of white dots on the photo? I like to see those. Are they reflection?

Haha... I have not come across anybody who eats ants in Penang, but I won't be the first one.

One: The white dots are actually the rain drops.
