THanks Jo Ann! I appreciate it. I had only tried this with the Nikon and Sigma macro lens a few times before with limited success. I forgot to note that I used a manual focus on this one which made a big difference from the last tries.

Hi
robert, I see now, you used a very small netting and a eye dropped and focused on the drops? Correct? thanks,Doug

Yes. Exactly. Sometimes when I buy long petaled flowers at the flowers, the flower is protected by tube of nylon netting that I cut, strech and clip between two box lids. Then apply the water with an eydropper to the net as noted.
