Thank you Lynn and Mary Beth! These flowers were drenched in droplets, and I took dozens of shots (with maximize DOF) before I realized that I liked the shallow focus results much better! #7928395

Ha ha ha, Jessica! Now what kind of gear does 'Linda' have...maybe I'll switch if hers is better!

Val Feldman level-deluxe September 09, 2009

What an incredible capture! I've never seen dew captured quite like this - the droplets look like tiny strings of beautiful glass beads! Wonderful, wonderful shot, Tess - great eye and a terrific capture! Bravo! #7928659

Tess L. Yee September 09, 2009

Thank you for the great comment, Valarie! There were two or three of these plants in someone's front yard (thankfully, close enough to the fence and sidewalk so that I could 'reach' with a 60mm macro). Every flower was literally covered with these droplets. #7928691
