'Jill, are you ok?' My neighbor yells across the yard. 'Yes, I'm just taking more photos of water drops'... as I continue to crawl through the grass. So begins my daily treasure hunt. I am a fan of all things water; drips, drops and flakes. I prefer to photograph nature in its most microscopic form.

Here is a video I created. I use a mixture of dish soap, water and a few drops of glycerin. I used a straw to try to put the bubble in camera view. I used my iPhone 7 Plus, set up on a small tripod. There was just a bit of wind and 8F. Perfect conditions!
