A world in a drop

After yesterday's post, we noticed that the photograph of the raindrop on the allium bud showed the opposite border upside down.

Here it is right way up. A world reflected in miniature. Or at least a small border in that world. And you can see the beautiful blue sky that lasted for around half an hour before the next torrential downpour. April showers a month late.

Amazing what will fit in such a small droplet! Thanks for pointing it out and putting it the right way up.

A beautiful bubble - thanks for the magnification and rotation. May is certainly making up in rainfall what April lacked. Hope it stops soon before the flowers drown !

Love images like this that need to be looked at carefully, to see a whole world open up.

Wow, what a photograph! Amazing how you can see more in them sometimes than when you took them. Like when you write something and someone spots something in it you hadn't intended, but like.
