Petals of an iris and a nice drop of water.

I had no idea on the first though I think Bynx could be correct. In the second photo, I think that's ice. In both cases, good work.

Bynx was correct on both counts. The first is an iris bud in the final stages before opening. The "eye" on the right side of the "face" is a raindrop. The second is a single raindrop with the color inside it coming from the iris petal on which it sits.
