Rain Drop Macro Photo, Rain Drop tied in Plantain Leaf String, a Cannon Powershot A530 picture

A raindrop Macro shot. Wandering around on a rainy day for something edible for the camera lens i encountered this water droplet. Was intending to check the ability of the camera to focus closer. This is the maximum least focal length i got for a Canon PowerShot A530 Digi Cam. The closest focusing distance in manual settings. Was just trying to get a closer snap.

The tied up Rain Drop.
The string is just a fiber stretching from the tip of a plantain leaf. Rain just poured off and the drop still remains unable to defy the force of adhesion from the string. The droplet may haven't thought of a trap like this when rolling down through the leaf.

The problem with manual focusing is, our hands have to be rock steady along with the subject in focus there. I think the camera done a better job. Wish i could have get the reflection of me from the droplet if i had an SLR with macro lens. Anyway have to keep experimenting to get the best out of a Digital camera.
cu soon
