Raindrops on Orchid, Lava Tree State Park, Hawaii

This is an ultra-macro image of raindrops on a wild orchid in Lava Tree State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii--check out the mini-scene reflected in each drop. To get this close I used a macro lens and three extension tubes (72 mm of extension). I write more about my process here.

So graceful! I love that the reflection in the drop creates a "yin-yang" effect....very nice!
