  1. Very soft background Flavio Posted one month ago
    1. It helps when the background has a plain single colour and the fact that the subject is tiny creates a shallower depth of field. Thank you for your feedback Niel, it's always greatly appreciated ;-) Posted one month ago

''Misumena vatia'' is a species of crab spider with holarctic distribution. In North America, where it is the largest and best-known flower spider, it is called the goldenrod crab spider or flower spider, because it is commonly found hunting in goldenrod sprays in the autumn.
