Hi again ...

today - no insect - only drops - after a refreshing rain. Nature is happy to have rain again after a period without a single drop.
When the sun is shining again the garden is glittering like there were thousands of diamonds on the plants.

I hope I catched a little bit of this magic for you ...

soso, wegen dir hat´s heute hier geregnet? *g* wieder mal ein einmaliges tropfenkunstwerk, sabine! :-)
die reflektionen in den tropfen sind immer faszinierend - was sieht man denn heute? etwas weisses und was gelbes...und was ist das für eine interessante haarige pflanze auf der du sie gefunden hast?
terrific job & viele grüße aus dem feuchten köln, thorsten.

hi sabine!
beautiful like usual :-)
great sharpness and reflection.

Una maravillosa y refrescante imagen.
Bellos colores y fabulosos reflejos Sabine.
Perfecta presentación amiga.

Hi Sabine,
U n'ver cease to amaze ...each one of these litle drops that loom large with another life's reflection is so neatly captured.What's that blue BG u got...that makes the whole picture more colourful apart from the usual green BG one sees.
Fantastic shot.
TFS & Cheers

Wow, stellar Sabine! A winner from beginning to end (left to right and top to bottom, concept to execution to presentation).

I have already told you, but looing at this I can only confirm that you are the master of water drops.
Another stunning and artistic composition, the colours a truly amazing. Congratulations.
About the "silky water" I would suggest you to experiment with "shadows and highlights" in the shots you already took, maybe you will be surprised.
Best regards, Felipe.

Hi Sabine,
This is an extraordinary shot and what surreal effect these water drops create. Just breath-taking and unbelievable how this inconsequential things can be converted into beautiful things of art - but it is not easy, one has to have that eye of seeing everything differently and giving it an elegant touch of his own, which you do so fantastically in all your shots. It is such a pleasure and honour to see your amazing creations day after day. Kudos.

many compliments, this a beautiful picture also for a landscape lore like me. The image is very clear, the colours are not exagerated and the composition is very nice.

This is creating magic with water drops. Magnificient work.
