A busy spider gave one of my pink Kaffir Lilies a different look. Taken using my new macro lens for my newly acquired Olympus.

Thank you for recent Comments and votes and to Newdawei for a much appreciated User Award.

A really great macro.... wonderful colours and composition with just that single drop of water, like a inset diamond. Grin

Was hunting for the spider here Carole,
before I realised your reference was to the ''tied'' up petals.
Must have been a big one though,with the water droplet it has left !!
A well lit shot.

The new lens in your capable hands is working a treat, as this floral presentation shows, Carole, and the effect of the spider's activity brings an original element to the shot.
So good appropriate title too.

Thank goodness Mick solved the puzzle for me Carole! Without the solution though I was still bowled over with the beauty of the shot and your excellent work.
