Hello dear friends and visitors!
I was visiting my archive and saw this pic taken in April 2010: "diamonds" resting on a sheet of Oxalis triangularis.
Hope you like!
Nice sunday and nice First May for all my good friends!
Big hug from,

Oxalis triangularis, commonly called False Shamrock, is a species of edible perennial plant in the Oxalidaceae family. It is endemic to Brazil.
Oxalis triangularis (Purple Shamrock) is a classic example of a plant which responds with movement to external stimulus. The leaves open and close in response to varying light levels with the result that they are open during the day and close at night. This is true movement (i.e. not growth) and is non-directional with respect to the stimulus making it an example of nastic movement towards light: photonasty. One image captured every 30 seconds for about 1.5 hours, played back at 25 frames per second; ~750x actual speed. The exposure time was progressively increased through the video so the drop in ambient light levels are not seen.Wikipedia

Bonjour Ana,
J'ai essayé d'ouvrir ton posting au moins 6 fois!!! Grrrrr!
Voilà donc les diamants que le titre nous promettait. Un très joli jeu de couleurs et des petites perles de pluie bien charmantes. Tu aurais éventuellement pu mettre le focus sur un des gros diamants, je pense que l'effet en serait encore plus grand.
Bien amicalement

hello Ana
very nice details and good sharpness
the colours and light are beautiful
thanks greeting lou

Hello Ana,

Best wishes,

Olà dear Ana!
I am fine, thanks and I hope to you too :)
Very good composition: excellent idea! It is like an abstract painting. I especially like the brightness and the trasparency of the droplets.
Very good sharpness and fine details. Beautiful vivid colours.
Congratulations my friend.
