    I also like #1, the flare and the bokeh balls... Spent a bit of time trying to figure out what it was, but still not sure. I assume it's part of a plant?

    ya hazwing, the water droplets are stuck on using surface tension (I think) on what appeared to be a tubular flower. I would guess the droplets are the size of a match head.
