Nice over texture in this picture.
That spider looks poisonous to me. I hope its not :)
Happy Tuesday!!

I am NOT a fan of spiders, but I think this is a great macro shot, and it looks pretty cool with that creepy crawly in the middle! Thanks for the share!

Mojo said...

Awesome shot! I actually rather like spiders... very useful creatures. And fascinating to watch.
I'm with Napa, the texture makes this one.
Thanks for stopping by!

Oooo.... that's stunning! I like it in black and white.

Beautiful & horrific at the same time!

Quality as ever Jams...

Julia Smith said...

Putting it in black and white really draws attention to the repeating pattern of the spider legs and flower petals. In an amazing way.

Hi Jams, that guy is bedded in really good. Was he green?
Happy WW/WT, thank you for peeking in on my Colorado small town scene as well. That was Mrs. Jim and she wasn't riding a bike that day.
Come back to my 'Little Blog' today and you can see her inside of that bar.

Great photo, so detailed.
At first, I didn't quite get the subject, I just got a figure in the center of a floral pattern.
I actually like spiders (so does Luna).
