In the photo above two things catch your attention.
- The shining water rainwater droplet on the flower bud, which almost going to drop.
- The shining design of the antenna & body of the mosquito.
✔Shining water droplet
Photography of water droplets is an interesting topic.
It’s the refraction of the image through the water droplet that becomes more interesting.
The appearance of the subject resembles that of a fisheye lens view and similar to the image in lens ball photography except the image is upside down.

My friend, female mosquitoes are dangerous.
Male mosquitoes don’t need blood for survival. The survive on flower nectar.
