Little Pearl...

It is too hot here (42 degree Celsius) to be creative.
I'm posting another one of my favorite image of 2011.

What a gorgeous photograph this is, and one that is definitely not easy to capture, but you have done it beautifully!

Thank you so very much for sharing today at The Creative Exchange.

I can see why this is a favorite. I'm always amazed at how much can be seen in a tiny drop of water. One would never know without taking time to really look.
Just as an aside...I have a group of friends-we've given ourselves alternate names just for fun. My happens to be L'il Pearl. Have a great day.
