Hi all,

Shooting this spider which was about the size of wheat grain, in back light was fun. Here i liked the way the glow of the flower was creating a translucent effect on the legs and i optimized my shooting technique ( changed to spot metering .. used reflector ) to get this image.
Hope you people will like it .
Crab spider is a common name applied loosely to many species of spiders, but most nearly consistently to members of the family Thomisidae. Among the Thomisidae it refers most often to the familiar species of "flower crab spiders", though not all members of the family are limited to ambush hunting in flowers.

Artistic creation with the Spider clinging to a flower, Goutham. Your settings were well chosen to create this interesting effect. The Crab Spider is in perfect focus in this macro.

Hello Goutham,
What a beauty...A fascinating photo with sharp details and exceptional natural colors. Nice composition taken from a excellent POV with lovely light and best clarity. A difficult shoot because the light is coming from behind....
Thanks for sharing!
