Spider on Tulip


I caught this little guy on a neighbor's tulip one spring day. The wind was blowing so I took a number of shots in rapid succession and only this one really came out.
What I love most about the image, even more than the spider itself, are the shadows of its legs on the petal. It took me some time before I realized what they were, and I feel it really adds to the overall depth of the image.

nice composition on this - the simple background allows the eye to focus easily on that little guy.
