There were two spiders in the flower when I approached it, but my camera scared one of them away.

I did more editing than usual (for me) on this image.

I cloned out dust specks, added layers for hue, contrast. Then I went in and tweaked individual colours until I liked the effect.

As a person with colour-blindness I shoot for what I like, rather than what I think might be accurate...or pleasing to others. I guess you could think of it as another layer of subjectivity.

I then applied USM, and Neat Image, added the border and resized before uploading.

Nicely done. The spider makes the shot way more interesting,

Very nice! The blue in the upper left is distracting, but I guess you couldn't crop it out without also cutting the bugs legs off.

The focus, composition and contrasting colors are perfect. One of my picks for the top 20.
