...of the Waterdrop Fairy
I don't have a real macro lens, so I used a macro lens attachment (aka modified magnifying glass) at F4.2 30mm zoom. Camera was placed in the grass. I didn't bother smooshing my face in the grass too, so I just randomly clicked until I got the composition right. Tone, contrast adjustment, straighten, crop, frame in post.
Back from camping/taking pictures while waiting for a boat. I normally don't like flower shots but I'm a sucker for extreme focus.
Not sure why it look so surreal, maybe it's the lighting or the waves in the background (yeah you can barely tell) but I like it so I thought I'd share it
I wanted a long title.
