Exquisite detail, Louis. A gorgeous image enhanced by the delicate nature of those reflective droplets of water.

So pretty smile
Louis: Thank you FLOOG, if find it interesting that I never see what is reflected in these drops - except when in a photograph
I subscribe Floog's comment
Louis: Thank you Stefania

Lovely image Louis. Love the colour of the flowers.
Louis: Thank you Aussie, as you can see we also have wet and stormy times over here. At least your drought must be broken now.

What an awesome shout Louis. Love the water droplets, they are so big.smile
Louis: Thanks Tracy, it is a macro shot taken with a 50mm lense and a tube extension that allows you to get right up to the object. It is a different way of taking macro pictures.
very sharp one
Louis: Thank you Chantal

een wondermooi beeld! I had niet gedacht dat regendruppels konden zo prachtig en kostbaar er uitzien zoals juwelen! Ik zou willen zeggen: "Some more raindrops"! Wat jammer dat het zo zelden gebeurd dat de regendruppesl van ons afdruppelen!
Louis: Ja, 'tis waar. Ik zei ook net tegen FLOOG dat mens nooit al die detail in de druppel zienen, behalve in een foto. Tegenwoordig hebben wij een goede regenzeisoen.

good band actually but your image is far better Louisgrin
Louis: Well tim it would be good if I could get more dosh than they do. I do have some lenses and the new 5D mark ii I would like to get.
Again another very well taken photograph, Louis.
Louis: Thanks again Chad
I was just dropping by and was enchanted by your water droplets on this flower. Makes my occasional macros look like nothing!
Louis: Thank you Sheila, I am still learning how best to apply the lens and extension tube, but believe it has great potential. Now let me go take a look at what you have smile

Wonderful Louis, prachtig, those raindrops are a delight.
Louis ik zal maar af en toe op SC zijn, sinds vandaag heb ik een nieuwe baan voor een paar maanden, 40 uur in de week.
.....en ik heb ook nog het één en ander in het huis te doen...
Maar een geweldige baan, maandag schrijf ik erover in mijn SC.
Louis: Tja, zo gaan de economie ook deze fotograaf opslukken. Gefeliciteerd met de baan - zal maandag daarover lezen. Inmiddels is 40 uren wel een heleboel voor nederlandsche begrippen - een dikke zak poen voor je. Groet.
Simply stunning image Louis !!
Louis: Thank you jimmy
Mesmerizing photo, Louis. Magical.
Louis: Thank you albert, the surprise is in the small world of a droplet which you never see if you don't stop to take a specific look. Sometimes we allow the beauty that is out there pass us by.
