Dear All,

A green spider enjoying its stay on these eye-catching and charming yellow flowers took my attention!

I like the heart of these beautiful flowers and wondered how artistic Nature is.

It was a fine sunny day and I enjoyed looking at such sights on that day.

Kind regards,

Hello Paras jee,
Besides human beings flowers are attractive for so many insects and birds. Perhaps this spider has nothing to do with flower but it's her hunting ground. Beautifully composed image in crisp details on subject. Excellent luminosity. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

A superb macro shot with a whole story in it, Paras. Perfect shallow focusing on the bonus insect and the FG flower. Perfect details while the complimenting blurred second flower makes this composition just stunning.
Great macro photography at its best!
This goes into my favorites.
My compliments, my friend.

The heart of the flower looks like a fruit, amazing sharpness with very good detail.
it smells like summer and it's nice to the eyes and spirit.
Excellent presentation with the bg green that contrasts well with yellow.

Hello Paras,

You're capturing well this double folower by a good focus and excellent clarity/rone, so it's impressive and interseting to see yellow flower with full bloomed. It's center is mysterious and impressive as nature's beauty. Probably, the spider was also inhaled by the charm.

Bonsoir Paras,

Very nice close-up. I like the diagonal compostion. Elements are well balanced. Excellent sharpness on FG subject. Good control of DOF soften BG flower but keep it recognisable. The little spider is a BIG plus to the image. It combines animal world to vegetal world. Exposure and contrast are excellent. Splendid image. TFS.
