Dewdrops, Part Deux

After the Franey Mountain hike, I started watching for dewdrops everywhere, every time I went out.  Here are a few I found on late-flowering thoroughwort near Carderock in the C&O Canal NHP in mid-October.

Each of these seed/filament thingies is about pinky-nail size.

I did pull out the macro lens and tripod for this shoot, but everything was drying quickly.
