Hello Christian!
Amazing, pretty flower with wonderful spider and fly as a bonus!

Excellent exposure, sharpness, details, DOF and colors Taz! Interesting scene as the spider appears to have his eye on the fly. I like this, Very well done!

Superb shot Christian. Excellent composition, sharpness and colors.

Bonjour Christian,
Cette magnifique marguerite s'est transformée en arène pour le bonheur de TN! Mais certainement aussi pour le malheur de la petite mouche ( Toreadoris Tauromacus ? ;-) ).
J'aime bien la sobriété de la composition et la netteté de l'ensemble. Bravo.
MPLP, cordialement,

Hi Christian, I do not have the time to write a decent comment. I give to you the well deserved smiley. Quelle richesse de détails. Une composition remarquable.

Thank you for sharing pictures and notes and for the enjoyment which they give to me.

Have a wonderfull weekend!

A stunning image Christian! The colours are so vivid and bright, the perfect composition which causes the eye to wonder again and again all over the photo. And the detail is superb!
