This is a beautiful capture of nature at its delicate and stunning best. They look like marbles - with streaks of coloured glass within. Makes me want to run off into the garden to get my own version of it!

Thank you, Joan. No, I never really learnt to play marbles. Jacks (knucklebones - plastic of course) were popular when I was at school though I wasn't very good at playing with them. I actually hadn't thought of the droplets resembling marbles until you and Auribins mentioned it.

Absolutely stunning macro, Rachel. I hadn't thought of marbles, but digging into the dusty memories, there is indeed a similarity.
