Good use of the light to show off the detail in the leaves and droplets.

The Sigma 105 is a nice lens. There is a new version out, but can't remember if it is Pentax mount yet. Pentax has the 100 macro which I think is weather sealed, but I don't know it's pedigree. My wife does a lot of macros with the Sigma and it is a good lens.

Otherwise you have a very sharp shot there.

I try and get my focus as sharp as I can, thanks for the comment.

Thanks tessfully, the leaves on this plant tend to make the water form tight droplets.

I dig this one, EM. Not only is it technically perfect, it projects a dark moodiness I find compelling.
