A suggestion....
If you have a superb opportunity like this, with an unmoving, 'captive audience', you can set up your tripod and make a focus stack. You would then have an even more wonderful image than you have already. There is free software to support it too (Combine ZP).
The dew droplets are fantastic.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks for that David I will look into that software. I was in a bit of a rush because we were about to go out so I only had a few minutes, good idea though.

I have downloaded Combine ZP and it looks brilliant, cant wait to take some photos I can or need to use it on.
Thanks for the tip.
