[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Early morning.. and dew drops in the net. Don't ask to have an insect sharp, because it will mean to loose a clear background. My idea was to have a sharp reflection in dew drops.

I like it very much but I think picture without insect would be better :-)

Very nice, but it would have been better to get the spider in focus.

The idea is very good, Astrid, and the result on the drops is really well achieved. Drops are sharp, luminous, transparent, showing the background upside down, and it works very well. I would have taken it closer (if you can't go closer with your lens, extension tubes will resolve the problem), and without the flying insect. Anyway, photographing drops is an interesting subject. Here, the chain in the light is very nice.
