    I only needed to look at the first like 4 shots. They are amazing. Wow the reflection in the water drops, how did you do that? What kind of lens and camera do you use?

    These are not really reflections, the message is infact behind the water drop, and the water drop is acting as a lense.

    I am using a Canon 5D Mark II camera body, with a Sigma 180mm macor lens and a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens. Also using the Canon MT-24ex twin flash unit.

    I love how the drops show detail of the flower that it is on. Wonderful shots. Thank you for sharing.
