Thanks to Ben , Konador for his video. He has a great voice and explains very well.

In my garden , there are a lot of similar pairs (smaller spiders for the roses) , they live happily together.

Wow, this one was yours. I also scored a PB in that same challenge, one more thing in common.
I thought this was very good in the challenge. The colours are sublime and the composition excellent. There is a softness to it that almost makes me like that little creature, and in real life, I can't stand them.
I didn't comment on it in the challenge as I am trying to comment on the ones I think are not so good, I think those photographers maybe need the encouragement more. But I gave it a 7.
And so nice you thank Konador, he is the reason for me being here (he does not know that). I stumbled upon his blog and saw that he mentioned something called DPChallenge, and here I am.

As much as I´m scared of these creatures, I still find them amazing! What an interesting specimen you´ve found here..such clarity and detail..very nice.

Beatiful macro! Very nicely exposed and composed. And look at that detail on the spidy. One minor suggestion, would've cropped a bit off the top. To get rid of the "V" shape in the flower shape there. Without it , even more focus is put on the spider.

I hate looking at spiders...they make my skin crawl...but it looks good on the flower...please make it stay there

very good subject isolation and sharpness. i like the OOF quality too.

Wow! Very nice. Perfect focus, nice coloring and great composition. My only criticism is the small black object intruding into the frame at the top. A little bit of cloning and this one would be near perfect.

I thought it was on the side of a toilet seat to start with!!!!
Nice DOF.
It would have been nice with a different background rather than that dark grass(?) area, perhaps some more flowers or at least a nice complemetary color.
