Hi folks, appologies for not having been around much lately on the site, sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day :-(
I managed to get a sequence of shots of the beetle on the right hanging in a droplet and the one on the left crawled slowly into frame as it worked it's way along the grass stem picking up more water with every droplet it came in contact with.
Taken at 2.5x magnification and using a small Lastolite silver reflector on the left to bounce extra light on the scene. With this lens, the more light you have the better!!

Many thanks to all who commented and voted on my previous upload.

Vic.
