First post, and it's a beauty -- welcome aboard!

I'm curious what the drops are made of. They look not quite round and shiny enough to be water?

Thank you for the welcome.
The drops are natural, I haven't changed or added, or manipulated anything on the fungus itself. The stack was made on early frosty morning, and these are frozen water drops, maybe that is the reason why they are not so shiny, and that's why you can see that 'lightning' like mark on the right water drop.

An interesting formation of ice!

That possibility did not occur to me. If it had, I think I would have rejected it because of the lack of obvious crystal structure. Maybe the fungus provides some chemicals that modify crystallization?

Nice and interesting!
Never before seen such perfect sphaerical ice crystals.

To be honest, I think I was just very lucky! The water is not entirely frozen, just partially, hence hold the spherical shape.
But it for sure helped in the composition, as the drops stayed steadily when I moved the branch around for better light.

Thank you everyone for warm welcome Smile
