It appeared this little jumping spider had made this flower his home. Early in the spring season this was literally the only flower in this park, it is a daffodil. The wind was blowing at a much higher rate than would be desirable for a shot like this, I am surprised I was even able to capture this at all.

Is it odd that when I see such close up shots of spiders I always think "how cute!"
How lucky for you to have gotten the shot with wind; heaven knows that the wind is a photographer's natural enemy. I like the orange, though. The orange makes me happy.

Thanks dude.

Well it's not really that special of a setup, I use a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 AF Di Macro and for this shot I had a 1.4x teleconverter attached to it which I am pretty sure you're not supposed to use it for, but it seemed to work well haha.

Sure thing!

Haha wasn't expecting terribly elaborate, just was curious :P Sounds nice, I think the converter actually increases magnification haha :P Nice shot all the same!
