A Poppy, a Spider and Some Dewdrops

By Alan_Baseley  
Taken in the garden yesterday. I was taking some shots of the dew covered poppy when the spider came from behind one of the petals, walked across and went behind another petal.

Thanks to Jenn for her Award on the Comma yesterday.

The colour is stunning Alan, the dew drops glinting in the light make for a wonderfully pleasing image, whilst the little Spider adds to the charm of such a fine piece.
