Lensbaby Spark using the Sweet 50 optic and two stacked macro lens (+2, +4).

The water droplet is about 1/8 of an inch in size.
This is moss. They grow these little spindles. Looks like a few of the strands got twisted and are now holding up this drop of water. I got soaked trying to capture this. :-)

Had to go up to ISO 3200 to get any shutter speed at all for hand-holding the lens. Tried several different filters and went with a sort of grungy look.
