Water Drops in the Calla

Description


Water drops are fascinating. Their shape can make them behave like magnifying glass, and the surfaces, inside and outside, can be reflective. In this photo of the inside of a calla lily, the water drops under the spadix seem to be reflecting and/or magnifying something that isn’t there?

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
