Caption

Dew on a blade of grass, photographed by Wilson Bentley. Early gelatin silver print of droplets of dew on a spider's web, imaged by US photographer Wilson Alwyn Bentley (1865-1931). Bentley attached a microscope to his camera and perfected a technique that allowed him to photograph meteorological phenomena such as snowflakes, frost and dew. Dew consists of droplets of condensation that form on exposed surfaces in the early morning and late evening. This photograph dates from the period from 1890 to 1930.
