    Byblis dewdrops photos - the lite version

    Alright, before anyone scrolls down and get disappointed at the poor composition of the photos and somewhat lack in photography skill...

    I was trying to photograph the leaves of the different annual Byblis species and though a black background is nice, it seems to cause the dewdrops to look kinda flat.

    Byblis aquatica


    So, I thought perhaps another colour in the background would be nice.


    However, I didn't have any red paper or cloth with me and resorted to using my daughter's balloon flower.






    Then I thought of adding a drop of water to show how big (rather, how small) the dewdrops are...




    And I digressed.




    It got really out of hand after that.

    Byblis guehoi






    My daughter's storybook as the background.






    Her fav cartoon characters again.




    I finally gave up when my arms ached badly from holding up the different items and the camera.

    Those are such fantastic photos, I never realized how minuscule the drops were...

    Really cool pics! The water droplet definitely did a good job showing how small the dew drops are.

    Hi Michelle,

    I used the
    - Olympus E-3
    - Zuiko 50mm
    - ZUIKO DIGITAL Extension Tube EX-25

    Olympus is not as popular as Canon or Nikon but my dad has been a fan for the longest time. He was working as a medical technologist before he retired and used Olympus and Nikon microscopes for decades. However, he prefers the colour the Olympus camera lends to the people in the photographs as it gives them a stronger rosy pink skin tone. I own only the Sony Cybershot.
