Discovered while exploring my favorite patch of cosmos flowers at South Coast Botanic Garden last Sunday. The drops were left from the early morning watering, and they stayed for a while because of morning fog. As I explored, being careful not to dislodge any of the drops, I came upon this trio of droplets refracting a single distant picotee cosmos blossom and giving the impression of an inverted garden. (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/5.6, 1/125 sec., ISO 400, overcast/fog, handheld)

In the new Flickr, click anywhere in the image to see the large view on black (worth it for the refracted images!) -- or press "L" to "view in light box" (same thing).
