Arbutus leaves magnified


The other day I went down to the lake fairly early in the morning and found lovely shadows and water droplets on Arbutus leaves on the grass.  This one's for Macro Monday over at Lisa's Chaos.  You'll find lots of sweet macro shots there.  I love the way the water drops act as little magnifying glasses for the veining of the leaves.

  1. Love all the blue-green shades in this. Your right, the water really does a great job magnifying.

  3. Beautiful drops. I love the detail of the veins on the pretty coloured leaves. I've always been fascinated with drops, how they're perfectly round, how they don't fall apart unless disturbed. A drop gives me a sense of peace in nature. That everything is still and new.
