Close-up of morning dew on fern leaves, against a dark background. (Johan Peijnenburg)

A close-up of morning dew on the green leaves of a fern plant, against a dark background. I used a fairly large aperture to limit depth of field and to blur the detail in the dark background. I shot this macro on a September morning while hiking in a forest near where I live.
