afternoon downpour -
a ladybug floats
in a frisbee

    Very simple, very memorable, this image will stay with me through the warm autumn, and the rains which will surely come!

    late night downpour-
    ceiling outdoes
    the leaky faucet

    everglades
    morning downpour--
    swatting horde of blood gorged black mosquitoes
