Alchemilla mollis – Lost in the Details of a Raindrop

This is a macro photo of a raindrop on the leaf of the Alchemilla mollis – a plant with big toothy scalloped leaves that capture and funnel rain into tiny little ponds that fairies could take a bath in, if fairies were inclined to do such a thing. Now, that’s a detail you probably haven’t heard before.


Why can we remember the tiniest detail that has happened to us, and not remember how many times we have told it to the same person.
– Francois de La Rochefoucauld-

This weeks WordPress photo challenge is Lost in the Details.

    1. I’m not sure I can do ‘whiskers on kittens’, but ‘Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes’ – I could do that this morning!


    1. Thanks Chris – I am always inspired by the photos on your blog. Your home turf is mine, except you capture it in ways I never can.


There, I'm finished. Now it is your turn:
