It's macro season in Florida.

I waited 20 minutes for the spider to climb up the back of this flower and come over the top.

I am not posting my settings as I truly do not understand why I was shooting at the ISO, and speed I was with a flash. The only setting I understand is the f/14. Obviously I never checked my settings.....

Hope you enjoy.

Love this one! The BG works very well and detail is great. I like the position of the spider bending up to the viewer. Colors are nice, too.

Good details on the spider and the flower. f/14 has worked well for this. The composition works well. nice background as well.

Beautiful composition and great colors. Love that the spider is nearly camouflaged. Very attractive work.
