Spheres in Nature

Challenge #54 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, show us spheres or balls formed by nature. This might be a flower, a dandelion puffball, a fruit or seed, a drop of water as dew, or the moon. Subjects should be taken outside in their natural environment, not inside under studio lights. No flat, one-dimensional circles, or spirals this time. Waterdrops should be natural, NOT those captured by high speed flash in a studio. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Small creatures (insects or spiders) may be present but should not dominate the picture, unless they are the spherical subject. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.
