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.

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
    blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really
    loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    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]

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
