Natural Sphere

Tried taking some shots of water drops this morning for the 'shape' thumbnail challenge. Couldn't believe the detail I had picked up in this droplet...(view it large if you have the time or inclination...) I had to post it but no way could I make it B&W... so I'll have to find another shape for today. Hope you like it too! :)
great shot Phil! Could you tell me how you got this shot? Anyway, I don't know why but I love this shot!

@sfeldphotos Hi Sam! Sorry, remembered that you'd ask how I did this. Not sure in all honesty, I was aiming for just a water droplet shining with hopefully a sunflare, and I was so surprised at this result!
I went out into the morning, got amongst the dewy grass facing the sun, got the camera down very low on a macro setting and aimed up towards the sunshine with a droplet or two between me and the sun. I did it 'blind' as I didn't fancy lying down on the wet grass in my pjs! The bokeh just came from the sparkles in the grass... the droplet in the middle must have been quite big. Hope that gives some clues :)
