Beautiful colours,sharpness.Lovely composition and a nice portrait of this tiny spider.

amazing colours, TFS Ori

Hy George
Spiders are not between my favourites invertebrates. But the flower is wanderful! The strong blue and purple, and those thinny polen grains spreaded around! And the composition is very good too!

Getting this beautiful image with hand held camera, amazing, so much details. Excellent colors and good format. The spider is cornered too much, bit more inside would have been good. tfs.

Hello George,
Taking about focus tiny things, you do better than the rest !.... this spider seems to jump out of the picture, despite being so tiny! Here are some similar and I can only take photos with landscapes that seem to them! are too tiny in my photos! ha ha ha:) (I put a picture in the workshop as a gift for your MF!) Not a good picture, but will provide you an idea of why I was so surprised to see this picture of you with a spider that looks great!

Moreover, what a flower! ... is impressive, and this increased optical sight, it looks almost magical! ... almost makes the spider less noticeable!

Regards, Happy Sunday for you, TFS!

Hi George,this is a materpiece.what a composition,what a colors ,what a sharpness!!You're a great professionist of macro,truely fantastic!!!My greats compliments,have a nice Sunday,LUCIANO

Soooo crazy - I'm hooked while looking at this shot! I looooove these colours - wow - brilliant, fascinating, fantastic, I can't find more superlatives to describe this shot.
Sharpness is excellent as usual - but that moment, this flower - and this wonderful spider - I love crab-spiders and I put it into my Crab-spider-theme.
The spider looks like it has painted itself with make-up ;-)
Thanks - again you made my day with this post.
Loooooove it!
Bye bye

Bonjour George,
A very striking and colorful crab-spider picture. Excellent framing with the spider in the corner. It looks almost like it would be installed on some celestial formation. Amazing..
Thanks and kind regards

Wow George, This image displays incredible colors which makes it real exciting to view. I also enjoy the composition as it fits very nicely as a whole. Good to see some fun photography again. :)
