Hello my friends,
today I'd like to celebrate my 350th post with you -
and also fathers-day, my best wishes and warmest greetings to all fathers here at TN ...

It's also a public-holiday today here in Germany celebrating the Ascension of Jesus. The Christian doctrine of the Ascension holds that Jesus ascended to heaven in the presence of his Eleven Apostles following his resurrection, and that in heaven he sits at the right hand of God the Father.

Besides that I decided to present this drop-shot today - drops, my passion, as you know, it's always a pleasure for me to watch what is to see inside their little bodies if you made the shot with perfect focus and the background is reflecting inside them.
Here we have wild forget-me-not in the back.

At the moment there are many chances to make shots like this - it is raining every day now for almost two weeks, brrrr!

Thanks that you "drop" by to see my post ...
Enjoy the day

Hello Sabine.

Congratulations with your 350th upload, all of them are little masterpieces.
As this one, the effect of the flowers int the drops is amazing. Perfect focus on it and lovely to view at.
Thank you for sharing it.
Also for your note, not many people knows the meaning of this day and are more glad to have it free then think about the meaning of it.

Gr. Hans

Lovely, charming and technically superb execution, Sabine! You can stay long, long time in front of this beauty and enjoy the wonders of those simple droplets and the tiny flowers "inside" them. I think we need more of this stuff here in TN! Bravo! Congratulations for your fantastic 350th post!!!

Hello Sabine
Superb composition!
Thanks for sharing

Hello Wishnu,

WOW!!! What an extraordinary picture for celebrating your 350th post!!!

The pov you chose here cannot be more perfect! The flowers within the droplets recall with the same flowers in the bg are splendid! The different size and locations of the drops create different tiny images. I like the fact that each flowers in each drop are complete...

Thank you very much for sharing with us this so wonderful pic!!!

TFS regards Bill

Hello Sabine friend,
My congratulations on your 350 pictures! I remember very well the first time I saw this kind of pictures of you, I was delighted with the effect you got it! ... Like this time, I have to say that the composition generates a sublime view of this phenomenon of reflection of images. Good work, very artistic, almost magical! TFS, regards, Jesús

Hi Sabine,

Congratulations on your 350th post. You could not have selected anything lovelier to celebrate with. The water droplets are beautiful and the flowers inside are magnificent. These remind me of those glass balls that you shake and snow falls. Here's to the next 350!

Hallo Sabine
bei uns ist es genau so, regen, kalt und grauer Himmel, und dieses Wochenende wird es nicht besser werden, kein Wetter um aus zu gehen, aber manchmal kann man es ausnutzen um so wunderschöne Fotos wie dieses zu machen,
die niedliche Blümchen in den Wasser Tropfen is einfach klasse, so wie die freundliche farben und die guten details
Grüsse Jacqueline

Excelente motivo muy bien capturado....saludos

Sabine, this is a great shot with the reflections. Thanks for your comment on my 'Protecting Her Chicks' photo. I appreciate it. Have a great day, Bill

Good morning Sabine,

If I could, I would give this photo a smile for every delicious drop, each of which is a mini-masterpiece. A wonderful combination of art and nature, and so well seen and photographed by you. I am smiling back at all these little forget-me-nots.

Greetings, Amelia
