Water droplets on a lotus leaf

I always found it so interesting to see how the lotus leafs seem to hold water drops. Their superhydrophobic surface helps water stay in that spherical form, rather than spreading out and wetting the leafs. What happens is that the water rolls off, carrying dirt with it. This is due to the series of tiny protrusions covering the lotus leafs, along with the protecting wax.

The nature is indeed amazing! Click on the photo for a larger view!

I photographed this leaf at the Snagov lake, near Bucharest, Romania.

    loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Am Dienstag, den 29., fand ein Mitarbeiter, dass sie gebissen worden war, und ein Live-alsofound Wanze und ein Exoskelett auf ihrem geliehenen Hollister Outfit. Alle Mitarbeiter wurden gezwungen, weiter zu arbeiten, auch wenn mehr und mehr Fehler wurden entdeckt.

    Do not put them in the microwave to preheat the inside, this could cause serious injury to the UGGS or the person wearing them.

    Martin Francis Hogan (October 25, 1869 August 15, 1923) was an Anglo American right fielder in major league baseball who played for the Cincinnati Reds (1894) and St. Louis Browns (1894 1895). He participated in 40 games over two seasons as an outfielder,[1] and his obituary states that he once held a record for stolen bases.[2] Hogan later served as a minor league baseball manager in Ohio and Pennsylvania. An outstanding judge of talent, he was responsible for signing Stan Coveleski and Sam Jones to their first professional contracts.[3]
