Went out on a photo walk in Fish Creek this morning and spotted this glistening out of the corner of my eye.

This is the cropped version
It is dewdrops on the bottom end of a bit of fungus growing on a tree stump. Involved another belly shot too. :laughing:

I thought the light stars might attract at least one comment. :)

Missed this one too!?? How is this happening. I don't know how you are finding all these dewy photos but they're very cool. Love the starbursts. :clap::clap:

I keep missing things, too. I can't quite figure out from what the droplets suspend. Can you enlighten?

I've been missing stuff too...seems the volume of posts is increasing or my time to post is decreasing :o

I like this shot and of course the starburts - For me though, the fungus is unfortunately stealing the show here. I'm finding it hard not to keep staring at the top part of the photo.

Do you think I should crop it to remove some of the fungus? Thanks again for the comments. :)

Personally, yup - I think if you crop most of it out, you'll end up with a different shape and the attention will be on the liquid crystal.

cool. I agree with the crop. it might be fun to try a close up of just one of the drops too. :0)

Very nice Casil. I quite like the 1st shot.

I like the crop in shot 1 better than the original crop. Bottom feels a WEE bit too dark here tho, I might try to get a hint more detail around the circumference of the drops. :twocents:

I like the cropped version better as my attention is driven right to the glare of light in each crystal which makes them look like glittering christmas ornaments.

Don't know how, but I missed this shot as well ... dammit. Casil, you never cease to amaze me with your vision for photography. You have a rare gift for seeing things that we miss most of the time, or, put it a bit differntly, you can make the most ordinary thing come to life like there is no tomorrow. Well done! Sell your work, dammit!:1st:
