The spider and the butterfly


I love this photo of this Monarch, but the spider it the upper left is also interesting. He kind of jumps off the screen. I really didn’t notice him until I was editing the photo. I’m fairly certain they see each other, but maybe it does not matter .. it makes for a great photo.

What is cool about this photo is how the spider and the butterfly are about at the same focal length, so they are in focus, and the depth effect on the background is really great. That makes the spider pop even more, and really make the photo.
