I've been hammering away at dewdrops, including ones on plants, and they are very difficult aren't they?! If one focusses with them large enough in the frame, there are depth of field problems.

Yes, I found at 300mm zoom, depth of field starts to be an oxymoron. For this photo I was fortunate that the plant was very small, with lots of detail, some of which was in focus.

In reality, I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right lens.
