Thanks, Suzanne. I’m glad you like the images.
Wow – great shot.
A wonderful shot & DOF with all the attention on the subject.
Tension creates a water lens which is going to function as a mirror giving external reflection, and most interestingly a natural camera, producing a picture of the external world.
I wrote about this many times, and published dozens of raindrops and dewdrops, even of frozen ones.
Just perfect! 🙂
Thank you, Inga.

Tremendous close up detail Mike.

Thank you, Tisha.
Though this is a drop of water, it reminds of the opening lines of William Blake’s poem “Auguries of Innocence”:
“To see a World in a grain of sand,
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour.”

I always admire rain drops on plants, and WILDEN MARSH blog captures many beautiful shots of this. CT
I’m glad you like the image, Cathy.
Absolutely beautiful, Mike, I spent a long time looking at that! You feel like you could see the world in there.
Thanks, Lucy. We humans are drawn to looking into water droplets, flames and clouds. Our brains get confused and see all sorts of things in them. They are natural televisions that don’t require a licence before we can legally watch them. 🙂
An often used shot BUT this shows how it should be done. Fantastic! (in quality and composition).
Thanks very much for your comment, Larry.
