    THIS is fun! I'm using a Nikon 60mm macro lens, an extension tube and a close-up lens. The one with the greyish background is an image of the backside of a phalaenopsis that the drop was on. The other two are calendar pages. Lots to learn yet. Lots.

    Well, ain't you something, Miss Thang! :D

    Those are very nice. Is this all for the calendar too? Or are you just unleashing your artsy fartsy side?
    Either way, I enjoy your brilliance, no matter if it's cake decorating, jewelry making or photography.

    Very nice, Ann. I've been thinking about photographing a drop of intense dark blue dye descending through a glass of water. I need to find a glass without water spots, first.

    Use one of those Egyptian towels you're so fond of, Dale. That should take care of the spots.

    "Use one of those Egyptian towels you're so fond of"

    Not likely. Too thick and heavy. It's Turkish towels made from Egyptian cotton, BTW. Gawd.

    I found a big ass wine glass and a wine flute that might work. But, I don't have a polarizer filter for my favorite macro lense. I'll probably need that to reduce reflection.

    I stand corrected on your choice of textiles. Pardon me, Martha.
