Liquid jewels

Rainy here this morning. When I looked up raindrops, I learned this from a science site:

Raindrops are not tear-shaped. Very small raindrops are nearly spherical As raindrops increase in size, they become flattened at the bottom due to air resistance. The largest raindrops split into smaller raindrops due to air resistance.

After the storm, drops hung like little round jewels from branches, leaves, and vines.
