Excellent macro. As I commented to Dilwyn, I'm glad you all don't have wetas over there. I love the crystal clear look of that big drop. Well done. Smile

This is wonderful Viv, I love your raindrops, you get so much out of them, not just another wet spot! As usual your buggy buddy is flawless....Maggi
A cross between a cockroach and a cricket with the addition of large legs. Their name (strictly, wētā) comes from a word in the Māori language, meaning "god of ugly things",ok Im one of those people who have to know!
