A drop of magic: Amazing pictures of flowers captured in a drop of rain

It's incredible what you can find in an ordinary garden if you look closely enough.

Amateur photographer Brian Valentine specialises in making the everyday look exotic with the wonders of macro photography, using special lens to magnify his subjects.


The beauty of a carnation captured in a drop of water on grass - plus a tiny parasitic wasp



Almost every detail of these fuchsia flowers can be seen as they appear to be held prisoner in their minute but perfect globes of water



All these pictures were taken in his garden in Worthing, West Sussex, and show the incredible beauty of flowers reflected in dewdrops and raindrops, usually on a simple blade of grass.


The humble daisy looks bewitchingly beautiful



A chrysanthemum appears to have been tightly packed into glass



Drops on a callistemon are monster-like



These reflected delphiniums look startlingly like eyes
