Beautiful! I like both of the versions, and that one little drop makes it even more interesting. Very nice!

Gorgeous image, Randy. Very cool how the waterdrop is placed in front of the oof background flower. The lighting and shades on the top petals really bring out some amazing details. Great idea getting it from the backside to capture some more incredible detail. Excellent composition.
