Spring Jewel

Even before spring has gotten into full gear, a quick trip to the local florist can make great pictures! A single water droplet, suspended in the pedal of Gerbera Daisy, refracts a Chrysanthemum flower placed in behind.

The effect turns the droplet into a jewel, showcasing the beauty of spring. In the smallest places nature can be wonderful, even while sitting on your kitchen counter.

This image was made with an off-camera flash and special attention was payed to avoid the flash reflection in the tiny water droplet.
