We have been so very desperate for rain in many parts of Australia, and finally the rains have arrived. They have come late in some areas, have received far too much in other areas, and not quite enough in still other areas. But the raindrops have been falling. Yay!
Rain is appreciated also by the thirsty plants which respond with a flush of growth and some with flowers.
Raindrops are also a photographer’s delight. After the rain is the best time for photographs.
The photo below is a microcosmic world in itself. The leaf forms are a metaphor for our planet, the raindrop a metaphor for the oceans, the individual drops the rivers and streams running into the oceans, and the minute hairs the people of the world, dependent on the water drop for life.
Some organisms are 90 % water. 60% of an adult human body is comprised of water.
Water is essential resource for life. Raindrops are precious.
Unfortunately, some creatures like the ones below also like the rain.
They are not so welcome.
