    Nice DOF and detail... very nice picture. Spiders really creep me out so I'm focusing on the flower. Very pretty flower! :)

    Thanks for the compliments. And to those of you who don't like spiders...well...you just haven't met the right spider yet.

    Not only don't I mind spiders (probably because there are only harmless spiders where I live), I also like your crystal clear, brilliantly sharp photo of this spider!
