Well done. I really like the first one with the droplets lining the leaves.

I like that first shot. For some reason water drops never form along the branches like that after the rain we have around here.

I love the first shot. It almost has a look of modern art to it like a crystal sculpture.
Good work!

Tulio, I think what might be different between this plant and the ones you refer to is the little hairs or little thorns on the branches and leaves. They are barely visible in this shot. Those hairs/thorn would be a natural place for water to collect.

Thank you for all of the kind comments.

I viewed the image at 100% and, to my surprise, saw no hairs. I think that the size of the mist droplets in the air are so small that they combine on the stems and leaves forming the larger drops. Large rain drops would shake and wash the drops off the stems.

So pretty, looks like jewels. I agree about the first one, that's something special.

Ah, that explains it! Thanks, Cal.
