Original Magnifying Glass

A light rain fell earlier today. Buffy and I were walking a loop around the yard when I found this line of drops on a honeysuckle leaf.

Closer observation showed how the drops magnified the leaf’s vein underneath them.

So, maybe the magnifying glass was developed from someone noticing water drops on an object.

  2. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that’s exactly how it happened. Nice shots!
