While shooting an assignment for a Better Photo class I saw this beautiful blossom and had to snap a shot. After a closer look through my macro lens I noticed this was someone's home and they did not expect company!

Lovely colors and DOF. Bugs can add or take away from a photo. You introduced this one so nicely, you can't help but like him. #9346075

He didn't attack you did he? lol I have had that happen also and never noticed until I uploaded on computer. You never know what you might find. Very clear closeup. #9347165

Hi Misty: The itsy-bitsy spider works very well with your beautiful image for the monthly contest. I am sure it is a winner! Merna #9351430

Beautiful soft colours and detail, love the extra company! #9351538

Outstanding marco image Misty. Your shallow depth of field greatly enhances the photo and the littl spider is great bonus.

Many times I will see detail on the computer that I didn't notice when I took the picture. #9356693
