Sumac leaves

Milkweed duking it out with dog-strangling vine:

I've read that jewelweed got its name from the way raindrops bead up on the leaves. It also has the nickname of "touch-me-not" because its seed pods *POP* open at a touch. I had fun confirming this.

Raindrops on rosehips and whiskers on kittens ...

the water-droplet on each rosehip is amazing. I've tried to capture that effect many times, and never succeeded quite like you did!!
