Dew is water in the form of droplets that appears on thin, exposed objects in the morning or evening. As the exposed surface cools by radiating its heat, atmospheric moisture condenses at a rate greater than that at which it can evaporate, resulting in the formation of water droplets. When temperatures are low enough, dew takes the form of ice; this form is called frost (frost is, however, not frozen dew).
Because dew is related to the temperature of surfaces, in late summer it is formed most easily on surfaces which are not warmed by conducted heat from deep ground, such as grass, leaves, railings, car roofs, and bridges. (From Wikipedia)

when I see a sphere shape droplets on a green leaf, it always remind me the Lotus effect (which means higher water repellency) and It makes me happy cause at work I deal with coatings that have this kind behavior or the opposite. Thanks for sharing.

Dew drops is a very lovely subject for make a picture.
I would in future try with a tripod, it is very difficult with a 300mm lens to make this image.
Yet the one drop is very sharp and clear for watched
Nice photograph work.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The water drops in a fine close-up, on a green leaf as BG.
I didn't know there is a blue edge on a leaf, but maybe as a result of light photosyntesis.
