These seem to be by Chandan V.
Never seen anything quite like these, wonder what his methods are. (Like Helicon software for deeper depth of field, perhaps? Especially the second one here would seem impossible without that.)

Tee waterdrop acts as a 2nd lens. Fairly easy to do with an SLR (either kind). Not so easy to just "find".

They are some of the nicer nature images using this technique.

Oh, I realize that the little image inside the drop will be in focus. But on image two and four in my post, many drops are in focus at once. This is statistically highly unlikely, they would need to be in exactly one plane. Unlike one took multiple exposures at different focus settings and combined them with Helicon Focus or such.

Reminds me of LordV on Flickr at:

He also provides a how-to at:

U, thank you for that.
