Default Daisies in droplets

We've had a short heatwave so I ran the sprinklers today. It didn't attract any butterflies but I saw these water droplets on the African Daisy.

Thanks you two!

JJ - the heatwave is now gone. The temp is dropping by 20 deg and we are predicting rain the next several days!

Amazing and really novel, Saly. The drops with the flowers showing remind me of paperweights. Glad to hear it has cooled down. I wish we had a heatwave right now....brrrrr !
I am wondering which camera you used.

Thanks John!! I used the FZ150 and stacked the LC-55 and the Raynox 250 to get enough magnification.

I like no. 3 because of the mostly green background but they are all amazing.

I am planning on getting a teleconverter before my next mc-birding trip in may. I tried one on a fz50 and didn't really like it. I am hoping the fz200 with it's 2.8 constant apeture will work better. Any suggestion beside panasonic 1.7x?
