Thanks! I did take them on an overcast day, also in the woods. I tried to shoot them wide open (f/1.8), but I got the same result you described every time, so I had to stop down a little bit, which did the trick

Watching flowers in the rain
I thought I'd take some pics of flowers in my garden, given we just had a hose-down.
I'll start pink:
Some pale-purple hostas:
And a close-up of one of them:
Black is a color too:
I'll end with "The Adventures of a Bug." I'll make the pics a bit bigger so that you can actually see the bug!
The bug has, adventurously, moved a bit:
And finally a shot from the side, the bug proudly waving its drippy antenna at the world:

Some water lilies
Water lilies are hard, I think, because they are white and generally float on a dark background. That means exposure problems, it is a lot of contrast to bridge. Lacking a lily-shaped graduated neutral density filter, I basically had to get lucky. I must have had some luck, because some of the pics turned out passable.
The last one is a sparrow that landed on the lily pads:
Somehow I don't think I've achieved the Great Canadian Water Lily Shot yet :-). All pics taken in St. Mary's, South Western Ontario, Canada.

Taken in New Orleans, LA.
