Underneath the leaves
I have never received any awards or recognition for my photos, but if I can earned a dollar for every weird stares I get from people at the local park when I do macro photography, that would be awesome enough. LOL
I doubt this was an ordinary water drop being slimy and bubbly. Besides, it was a really hot afternoon. We were running from one shades to another.
You can find a lot of interesting stuff if you just stop and look under the leaves.
Now that's insulting. Even a fly would turn away and show me it's rear-end.
This little guy's probably on his 'The Trial of Faith' journey. LOL

Awesome macro shots! I can't wait to get a macro lens!!!
I love it when people walk by my house and I'm out front with my camera sitting on a chair staring into the bushes looking for a frog!! It's even better when they come back around two hours later and I'm still there!! LOL

- very sharp
- great bokeh
- not that expensive
- maximum magnification is only 1:2 (0.5x); 1:1 with EF Life Size Converter
- have to get really close to get the max mag.
- the sound when focusing is a bit loud
If you have more cash to spend, better get the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro.
Maybe I should include this in your composition post...
