Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to try to look for squirrels.

This is a photo taken by DeviantARTist Fallout99 of the 90-foot loblolly pines in a Texas forest being refracted in a drop of water. I also included a non-upside down version after the jump. Damn Mother Nature, sometimes you really are alright. Jk jk, Mother Nature herself is actually a repulsive wench, but some of the things she produces are beautiful. Like butterflies and seahorses. Pretty much everything in Australia I assume she made after a really bad breakup.

Keep going for the right-side up version.

Thanks to Allyson S, who tried to tell me water drops are what make binoculars work.

  • I hate to be one of "those" guys but this photo isn't really that noteworthy...or well executed and certainly not worthy of an article on Geekologie. Its an entry-level to enthusiast level photograph at best.

    I'm amazed at the patience and attention it takes to do things like this

  • To take a picture?

    LOL - not just that learning all the setting to get the macro shot and lenses and filters and snapping 1000 pictures and then look at each one dissecting it until they get this one. It's a bit of a process from what I've been led to believe - or maybe they used their iPhone and I just really suck at taking creating pictures on the fly - who knows.

    Maybe to flip the picture?

    I can think of a few older folks who might consider that a Herculean task.
