Alchemilla Mollis

As usual, the Lady's Mantle flowered well in the garden, but I prefer it when just the leaves are catching the raindrops and morning dew. Trying to get clear macro shots of these leaves led me to discover the use of Extension Tubes on my lenses, and I've combined 10mm and 16mm tubes for this image.
"These beads of water were considered by Alchemists to be the purest form of water. They used this water in their quest to turn base metal into gold, hence the name Alchemilla."
