Default Good Looking Spider Veins

A tiny spider I found floating on his gorgeous "spider veins". Hidden among yellow flag iris.

He's actual more green. It was early morning light, very overcast. I used manual setting and AWB. It's an Orchard Spider.

Getting out early in the morning helped a lot with the shot. There was no breeze so I could use manual exposure and no flash. 1/4 shutter speed. Macros and wind don't mix too well when you're trying to focus. At my age it's hard to focus anyway.
