I planted these tiny Siberian squills when I moved in here 25 years ago, and each year I find their delicacy alluring. Just three or four inches off the ground, a good angle means getting way down on their level, but the vibrancy of the blue and green in late winter/early spring sun is well worth the pine needles in my belly.
And then, looking through the photos I took, the strange circles in just a few of them made me wonder if my lens needed a good cleaning or if there was something in the air. They were tiny raindrops on one of those dramatically sunny and dark days. I’ve never caught them like this in a photograph, especially using my original 50mm lens with a 1X converter that I use to photograph the faces of flowers.
