Thanks bugsy. Glad you liked it. Well we hadn't been looking for crab spiders — we were actually looking for spotted sun orchids (see http://forums.steves-digicams.com/cl...n-orchids.html) and this little fellow happened to be under one. We were in that best of all spots — the right place at the right time.
Thank you for your comments.

Cheers

Bernice

On a scale of 1 to 10 this photo has to be a 100! It is so tack sharp and well composed it is amazing! I have never seen a Crab Spider before.

Oh, by the way, I absolutely HATE Spiders!

Thank you very much Dick for your encouragement. I'm not at all keen on spiders either once they get bigger than this little fellow!

Cheers

Bernice
