True enough, but that may be due to the different 'body' temperatures of flora and fauna or the 'heaviness or lightness' of the condensation. I am not a scientist, so cannot give you the explanation. ;-) To return to the fist comment on the page (which might be by you), I am convinced that these 'dew' pics are not photoshopped.

True enough, but there have been pictures of water-covered bugs on items like blades of grass and flowers and their perch was not dew covered.

“The dew point is the temperature to which a given parcel of air must be cooled, at constant barometric pressure, for water vapor to condense into water. The condensed water is called dew. When the dew point temperature falls below freezing it is often called the frost point, as the water vapor no longer creates dew but instead creates frost or hoarfrost by deposition.” (Wiki) Horizontal and flat surfaces exposed to the dew receive a greater deposit than sheltered or oblique surfaces. The surroundings in this picture, the vertical rock surface, would still be warmer than the air temperature and thus the dew would not form on it (although as the insect is covered in such heavy dew, the rock surface probably has very fine condensation on it), whereas the temperature of the insect has fallen below the air temperature. If the insect were on the ground on a blade of grass or a flower, that also would be covered in dew. If the dew point temperature would fall below freezing, this little guy would be in trouble...

But would not the surroundings also have dew drops on them?

The more I see of these waterdrop-covered images the more I am convinced that they are photoshopped images. Nothing else in these photographs is covered with wataer drops and if the animals had flown to where they had landed there would be no waterdrops on them, or at most a couple of very small ones.
