Guess what? :) I got my own macro lens (thanks to my parents)! :D :D Today I have been practicing droplet photos in a more controlled environment (my dining room). It's really fun and exciting to get closer to the types of photos I've been hoping for. And it's a lot of work, but I feel like this particular image made it worth it. It's my favorite, and I hope to continue to improve and learn better techniques.
I'm behind on several photos that I want to post here. Sometime I'll catch up!
