Smashing lighting and colours, Monika! The blurry foreground adds depth to the pic but I would crop a little bit off it anyway, so it doesn't distract from the beautiful main flower! #123366

Dolores Neilson May 26, 2019

Gorgeous, Miss Monika!! I love the bright oranges and yellows! Excellent dof ...going from blur in the foreground to sharpness of the flower!! Love the blur and sharpness! #123385

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments, everyone! I appreciate them all greatly!
When I was taking this photo I didn’t notice the little spider, until I got home and started editing my new photos. He nicely surprised me. I think he added a little more life to this photo.
I’m glad you like it! Thanks again!

Stunning flower shot complete with spider. I really love the lighting and colors in this. It is so warm and vibrant. Excellent job! #139426

Monika Sapek level-classic July 10, 2003

Thank you for your wonderful comment, Thomasa!

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe July 11, 2003

Gorgeous, Monika! I love the backlighting and your close composition! The colors are bold and beautiful and your exposure is just right (keeping it very bright but still under control). The spider is a nice bonus also! I suspect this will go further. Good luck! #139839
