Frankfurt Palmengarten

Here are a few of the things that caught my eye on our second visit to the Frankfurt Palmengarten (botanical garden).

The photos that were the most fun to take were the goslings; I was surprised that the parents (who were right nearby) didn't take much notice of me, even when I got within 2-3 feet of their babies! The little ones barely noticed me either. I took 200 images of them alone, so it was hard picking just 3 to show here.

The photo that I am most excited by is the water droplet; It is very neat to have captured a miniature image of the plant's leaves inside the droplet. If there's a trick to that other than trial and error, I haven't learned it yet!
