The ubiquitous dandelion seed is nature's gift to macro photographers; the addition of water droplets enables image refraction and provides endless possibilities. This image was taken under controlled conditions in the studio using focus stacking to achieve the desired depth of field. The refracted subject is a pink Osteospermum flower.
