    I've seen similar photos before... Not sure whether it's the same photographer. You can't get dew drops that dense unless it's foggy at that time, which is common in some countries.

    These are amazing shots! Another one of those series that leaves one in awe. Would be nice if someone can capture a bug in motion shaking off the dews.

    If only the human female species will accept water droplets as bling bling for their dresses.

    Wow, this is pretty amazing.

    Does seem to be staged though.
