I thought it is quite interesting how the sun dries off the lamb's ears. It seems while evaporating tiny water droplets form on top of the hairs. Just think it looks pretty.

I used my extension rings (set of 3) on the 55-200 zoom lens.

Other than the green color, it could be an animal's ear. Love the textures and the jewel tones of the water droplets.

Thank you everyone for your kind remarks.
It is quite remarkable how those tiny droplets form in the sun before everything evaporates (I think its got to do with water surface tension). I was too late to catch the ones on the back of the leaf which would have been nice because you get the veins as additional detail.

You just never know what you'll find when you look really close.

This is a wonderful image and I'm glad you posted it, because I
never would have seen this without your camera.

Good shot, you have some good detail there, and I like the complementary colours and the blurred background, Michele
