Thank you, Debra. It hasn't been a great year for roses with it being so hot and dry but this one really stood out and the spider added a nice touch too.

Wonderful close-up Heather. The spider stands out nicely on the pink pedal backed by the softly focused green leaf. Great composition really show cases the rest.

A rose is a rose but the hansa rose makes the perfect villa for the white crab spider. You'll find one camped out in most rose blossoms and a host of other blooming plants waiting for something edible to come their way.
