REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Water drops...in macro, of course!

It has rained for two days and I've be catching raindrops....well, actually, they are water drops on the leaves in my yard.  It's Macro Friday on Blogging from Bolivia, too.

My choice for the challenge is the first one---the drop from the maple leaf, reflecting branches inside.  (Each photo can be enlarged with a click.)

 All photos were taken with a handheld camera...Pentax istD ...18-55 mm zoom.

I love water droplet photos and especially looking into the droplet to see what been reflected inside it - all of yours are lovely. I normally end up with the lens covered in droplets too.
