nice refractions! how large (in diameter) were those dew drops? I am wondering if i could get the same results with my 100mm 2.8 macro lens. Thanks in advance :)

Thanks for looking and commenting everyone.

Blake i was shooting at 4:1 FF, In general you need to be able to shoot around 2:1 with a crop camera to get a decent size on these so your 100mm with a set of ext tubes or perhaps a reversed 50mm lens on the front would do it.

Thanks for that info Brian. I think I might invest in a reverse lens mount to fit my 18-55 on my 100 for some of these. Can't wait to try it!

Brian, I'm thinking that there is no flash used on these, correct?

Really great work! As usual!

Well Brian, I'm sounding like a broken record but that's another beautiful series. I love your work.

Thanks for the comments Chas and Dan - appreciated.
Chas- no they are all full flash. - I was shooting handheld around 4:1 for these.
