About the Image(s)

I came across this beautiful and horrific scene while walking with my dogs. Luckily I had my Red with me. The dogs made it difficult to keep the camera still, but I was able to get this shot. It wasn't until I got home and started editing the image, that I noticed the Daddy Long Legs watching from the upper right corner of the original. Sadly, he didn't make the final cut.
Processed in SDM and gimp.

Steve, You have made this is into a very nice macro shot. For a closeup, the insects are very sharp. I will have to check out the gimp.   Posted: 09/08/2021 15:57:11

Nice macro! I am trying to learn GIMP; the tutorials are fast paced, I think.   Posted: 09/09/2021 09:00:31

Another great "Bug (two bugs) in a Flower" image. Such a chance to see this action and get a great shot as well. I would have missed it if I had dogs on a walk.   Posted: 09/20/2021 14:25:05

Interesting macro image. Normally one expects bees in a flower, but here it is an action by a spider!!! The image has nice depth. Your cropping looks good to me. The insect and front portion of the flower are in sharp focus. I didn't find any window violation. Nice work.   Posted: 09/24/2021 14:24:41
