Macro Monday: after the storm

As always click the images for full view to be able to appreciate the detail.

A lot of my vacation involved walking forest trails. The last two days it rained. Sometimes hard, sometimes just spitting so my friend Robi and I walked the trails when it was not raining (and sometimes when it was)

This one was not rain droplets but rather the fungus growing on the tree was sweating with the humidity between storms that waved over us. A clothesline that was very interesting to watch the water droplets form and fall when they got too heavy to stay up.

Finally a Daisy. I don't see many of the white ones like this back home unless someone plants them. They were everywhere up north.
