every dew drop has heaven in it

I love beautiful pictures... I feel inspired, I see life in perspective and for a moment I escape the concrete jungle and reality... so I thought I'd share these with you... the pics below are refractive macro-photographs, theme'd around dew drops...

The pics, photograph and photographer info can be found on scienceray, which I read about on astropixie's blogg!


This is my favourite one:



"In Greek mythology, Ersa is the goddess of Dew. She is the daughter of Zeus and Eos, the goddess of the dawn. Eos would rise each morning to greet Helios, the god of the sun. She would open the gates of heaven for him so he could ride across the sky."



"The surface tension of water is such that small creatures, like the Gnat above, can become trapped in a single droplet. They may drown but there is always hope that the plant will transpire more water or further dew will form, making the droplet roll and splash, so releasing its unwilling captive."
