Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “delicate”. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

To me, there’s nothing more delicate than water a few drops at a time. Have you ever come close to rain drops or dew drops? You barely touch them or breathe too hard close to them and they fall and are gone in an instant (not so fun when you’re trying to photograph them). Here are a few examples of water in its most delicate form.

Here’s a single rain drop still standing on this grass blade. Tiny droplets also show the fuzzy texture of the grass.

I love the delicate patterns that raindrops can make on leaves after the rain.

How about these dew drops on a spider web created by a grass spider? My kid stepped on this spider web right after I snapped a few pictures.

Is there anything more delicate than dew drops on rose petals?

And how about frost? We get some frost in the winter in San Diego but it comes in very delicate layers of ice crystals. As soon as the sun comes out and starting warming up the earth, the delicate frost is gone.

    I love the spider web dewdrops! It looks like spun glass.

      Isn’t cool looking? The webs grass spiders make look pretty messy until you throw some dew drops on them. That’s when you realize how they’re built.

    Oh lovely pictures but which one do I like best; I was toying with the first one but one the whole I think I like the second one best with the green and the red leaves with the pattern of the leaves showing so clearly through the water droplets.
