The bee on the flower is an excellent shot, but the reflection in the water drop is one of the most compelling closeups I've seen in this forum. Simply a wonderful photograph and well worth the effort you put into it.

Hi Bonjen3

The Daisey type flowersin the garden were at different heights (so I worked out that if if I were at the right angle (looking down at about 45 degrees) a drop of water coming down from the petal would act like a magnifying glass on the flowers lower down)I first focused on the petal and used a plant sprayer to spray water onto the petal and waited for the flowof waterfrom the petal to slow downto try and catch the drops, but the drops I did manage to catch were out of focus, (maybe because the focus point was the petal!) so I tried moving the focus in then out till the drops came in to focus. I used a flash to try and catch some highlights,(the disadvantage with flash is I couldn't use burst mode)D80 was on a tripod and using a cable release. As I said it took almost 2 hrs for a very few keepers,:-)
