[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was an experiment to try and use the built in flash to obtain a natural looking macro. I used the Panasonic Lumix FZ30 with an Olympus B-macro lens and the provided Olympus diffuser that slots into the macro lens. I backed the flash down to 50%.

I like the contrast between the pale blue flowers and the green of the spider.

A wonderful shot, Jim,
I like the colours so much - and the spider is very interesting - almost looks like wearing metallic colours. Thanks and greetings

Hello Jim,
Really it was a great idea to back the flash down. It really looks very natural and the colours are very fine. Excellent composition and good sharpness.
Best regards

Hi Jim, a great shot, contrast between the flower and spider works really well. Great light, colours and fine detail and sharpness on the spider. I like the POV.

Amazing photo, nice colors and composition.
