February Desktop Image

OK, folks, here is the desktop image for February. This is taken with a Nikkor Micro AF 105mm lens, which is capable of 1:1 magnification. This is a droplet that just bounced off the surface of water. I used flash, exposure is at 1/2000th of a second, f/5.6 (Nikon’s creative lighting system has a trick to “sync” the flash at such high shutter speeds). The reflections you see at the right and upper edge were not indented, but I think they add to the picture.
