2019 Honorable Mention, Northwestern Scientific Images Contest. Water vapor condenses into droplets when it encounters a cold surface. The surface was made to be a wavy pattern. Condensed droplets periodically change in size from the apex to the valley, just like strawberries growing on a freshly tilled farm. The first mature strawberry in the middle (dyed in red intentionally) suggests the harvesting season is coming.
