In previous posts I have shown the surface tension properties of water, in regard to the shape of droplets and the crown like designs as the liquid hits a solid surface.
I couldn't resist adding this latest shot of droplets hanging on a spider web.
Water gives not only its amazing surface tension properties to create this shot, it also has the ability to act as a the reflections of the plant behind it...producing a myriad of reflected forms.


  1. Hi David
    Lovely photo.
    Inside the large drops one can make out the same leaf which is in the background of the main photo.
    Of course, inside each droplet, the image is shrunken, and reversed, owing to the convex lens effect.
    Very nice work.

  2. Amazing! And a great photo.
