[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These spiders may be yellow or white, depending on the flower in which they are hunting. Especially younger females, which may hunt on a variety of flowers such as daisies and sunflowers, may change color "at will". The color change from white to yellow takes between 10 and 25 days, the reverse about six days.

Hello Dijana,
I really like all the bright colors which fill the entire frame. The spider appears to be in sharp focus which is your subject. The flower is secondary and doesn't necessarily have to be sharp, however I think it would be a bonus if the petals would be sharp also. Just a little higher aperture setting would give you more DOF bringing the spider and petals in focus.
