i was out in the woods today and took these pics. i was really trying to get a drip in mid air, but i just couldn't get it timed. the drips were almost a minute apart. and, unfortunately, i didn't have my tripod with me. i wasn't expecting to be taking macro pics. dumb me.

That's pretty darn cool! (Pun intended!)

It's like the birth of a drip.

I could see how timing that would be tricky; especially hand-held.

I really like the prismatic colours you captured in that second shot. And the reflections in the forming drop are fascinating.

thanks, guys. the reflections on the right side of the drip are actually of the blue sky and the trees behind me and the white you see is the snow we got saturday night. this icicle was hanging off the bottom of a leaning dead tree in the woods. i would love to shoot a pic like this with a 400mm or 500mm and tripod, just for the reflections.

Nice shot! I was lucky enough to get one or two....but after many shots!
