WOW! I think you must have an abundance of patience to capture this. It is so sharp in each drop and the pattern from the angles of the drops make it fluid and intriguing. WTG

Irene Colling level-classic 1/11/2012 8:54:24 AM

I made this by placing water drops on a sheet of glass 8 inches above a sunflower. I focused on the water drops so the sunflower was thrown out of focus. #9914733
