When I saw the concentration of drops on this lambs ear in Hopeland Gardens, I couldn’t resist creating another composition from the same area where a previous subject was captured.  I loved the number of drops and their shapes.  And, I love how they act as miniature magnifying glasses with splashes of refracted color.  Some of the globes of water in Ear Drops remind me of a Plasma Lamp.  The scene itself is fairly complex, which is aided by the high level of detail (e.g., individual strands of hair can be seen).
