I've become quite fascinated with these tiny, yellow creatures which I'm told are "Crab Spiders". They are truly crafty, stealth hunters! I'm on day two of my journey into macro photography. Woot! Here is a link to the larger size photos on Flickr.

Wow- fantastic shot in all respects. Great use of pattern in the circular leaves, bold contrasting colors, and sharp where needed. 5/5

Thanks so much, Adam. This is very encouraging because I'm brand new to macro photography and feel very much like a fish out of water. That aside, I am loving the challenge and the introduction I am getting into this alien world.

I also have even greater respect for those who are so much better at this than I am.
