Macro of a leaf of on a Miniature Umbrella Tree plant
Photo and caption by Charlie Perity
This is an amazing macro photo of a single leaf of a common house plant. (AKA: Schefflera Arboricola) I sprayed the leaf with tiny 2mm droplets of water and carefully positioned the plant so that the sunshine was perfectly focused by the tiny beads of water. It was a very difficult photo and it took many attempts as the water droplets have to be spherical to act like a lens and to focus the sunshine.
