The world globes itself in a drop of dew.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Fog droplets bathed much of the vegetation yesterday (click photos to enlarge)
Yesterday morning’s fog left not only pearl-strung silk necklaces strewn across the meadow, but also vegetation, and the insects hiding amongst it, covered in shimmering beads of water. I can’t resist trying to capture images of these bejeweled beauties on such a morning. Droplets of water seem to make everything more worthy of our attention.

Two-striped Planthopper on a dewy grass stem
Droplets make even a Flesh Fly (at least I think that is what this is) more appealing

Bush Katydid nymph cleans some of the water and spider silk from its legs
