I too had my camera ready for the thunder storm the other week, but no luck! It was absolutly spectacular where I live!
This photo is another good one from you and the note is VERY interesting. I like the background colour and the focus is good considering the difficulty of trying to get all the legs in focus in the shot. Well done.

Excellent compostion, Valerie. Perfect DOF and clarity, fiine colours, and even a touch of dynamism (looks like it is about to run away on you). Superb notes too

Bonita y bien compuesta foto esta "araña de patas largas" que por tu nota veo que no es una araña. Magnífica composición sobre la flor con una acertada escasa profundidad de campo, que hace parecer todavía más largas a las patas.
Bonita y creativa foto.
Un saludo, José M.

je trouve drole la façon qu' a cette araignée de mettre ses pattes,les couleurs sont naturelles,l'ensemble est tres agreable malgrès que beaucoup de personnes aient peur des araignée.
bon week end.

great shot of this spider on a bindweed flower. you did well given the lighting and legs.
I like very much this creatures, they are very interesting.
Although DOF is in the short side, you captured a very nice composition with such a perch.
I made a workshop to adjust lights, but of course that is question of tastes. Hope you like!

Lovely shot! The problem with Harvestmens is that they aren't really very preety. It's hard to take an attractive picture of them, but I have no doubts that you did it! Whole shot has superb, very delicate colours and quite exceptional peaceful mood. I don't know how you did it, but I'm sure this is something special! :-)
VERY WELL DONE!

WOW This pic is almost the same situation I photographed for my first post on TE !
Please you have to visit my page and tell me what do you think about it!
I think that my harvestman was bigger so I could use a less extreme DOF...also the flower is similar !
Anyway, great details about the body and great work !
TFS regards, Valerio.

phantastic image of the harvestman, perfect on focus, in a most appealing diffuse light that makes it look to be suspended in the air above the blossom it is balancing on with its thin and fragile legs.
Very good, well informing notes.
Thank you! Best regards,
