[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In my place, Jitra the dry spell was at its highest. There were no rain for quite sometimes. The grass were brown and dry. Even the morning dew were not that abundance and even at times, not much were seen collected on the leaves. It has been quite hot and stifling. Insects were not seen in the bushes and the sound of dryness is felt whenever I went out for photo opportunity.
But that morning, there rains for about an hour. Though it was not that heavy, it is a blessed moment.
Thanks God, just because of that one hour, the grass returned to green again. It is so much of the natural water very much needed. Thought i have been sprinkling my plants with water, it is never the same with the blessed one from the sky.
I just depict the moment of droplet with an ant coming towards the droplet of water on a stalk of leat in my small garden.

Salam Akhi Foozi

Wow! What an impressive waterdrop here! I don't find any word to say for critizing this beauty. You have done it very well my friend. Bravo! Thanks for sharing it.


Salam Foozi.

The splash of rain was a true blessing indeed. You have capitalized that moment well with this fine shot. Not only the ant is sharp and happy, the droplet is so beautiful giving out the reflection of life.

Nicely silenced buttery smooth background in excellent framing.
Best regards,

hello Foozi

Ya Foozi,
Assalamu alia kum,
Indeed superb, SUBHAAN ALLAH.
There are moments that teaches us to be calm and wait by patience for the result, so this ant.
I try to be cool, enjoy the nature and wait.
