Lost in the Details of a Raindrop

This is a macro photo of a raindrop on the leaf of the Alchemilla mollis – a plant with big toothy scalloped leaves that capture and funnel rain into tiny little ponds that fairies could take a bath in, if fairies were inclined to do such a thing. Now, that’s a detail you probably haven’t heard before.

    • I like the plant, but was surprised by the flowers. I didn’t expect clusters of tiny, tiny flowers. I thought it would have big flowers to match the leaves!
