Sue, please continue to post when you can, and continue to work on your MFA! I'm on semi-holiday from photography for awhile myself, so I understand about time demands from other things.

Thanks Rik and Gordon. Yes, I do believe the seed at the bottom of the referenced page is what is on the raindrop. Cropped from the original image, the "seed" did have the appearance of a very tiny insect.
