To create... or not to create {raindrops}

As I was reading up on tips and tricks on macro photography... one of the photographers mentioned using glycerin to create the illusion of raindrops. When my attempts at creating 'rain drops' failed..... I ran to Michaels and bought Glycerin. I must admit a part of me is bummed to know that the beautiful raindrop macro photos that I absolutely love could potentially be man made with Glycerin. Kinda like... being told Santa isn't real.

P.S. do you see Kaili's reflection?
