These Blackeyed Susans (rudbeckias) are the large type- this one is 5 inches across and the tiny green spider is less than 1/4 inch (body). I disturbed it & it was traveling fast so i was happy to get it this clear.

This is gorgeous! The detail on the crown of the flower is amazing. And for a spider, he's kinda cute.

Nice! I didn't vote 100% so this didn't come up for me in voting. I need to get myself one of those 100mm macro lenses!

Creepy. The focus is a tad off (I wouldn't blame you for getting out of there fast... I would) but other than that, it's great!

I've seen those spiders' they're teeny! And usually scurry under the nearest petal when they see me. Nice shot, and a very pretty little flower he's on.

Love the contrast of his green against the golden yellow petal. I might've sharpened him a touch, or maybe I just need to clean my glasses. :P 7
