Nice effect, The water drop acts as a lens to magnify the leaf while also providing a wide angle reflection of the world.
Thanks Steaphany,
I was watering the plants when I noticed water droplets bouncing off those leaves so I carefully dripped some more water on and got my camera. I've got a color version where you can see more of the water droplet effect.
