      Extra Info: This little spider about 2cm (0.8") legs included sits on its back, leaning on the yellow raised disk with its legs in the air and waits for an insect to land. I'll put a photo in the outtakes. Apparently it is fearless and grabs anything that lands.

    Thanks for the votes and comments everyone.

QueenE: Apparently they can change their colour as well. I'll have a word with him and ask him to change to a more acceptable level of pastel and find a more pastel flower LOL

I figured this would not do well but I was so pleased with the shot I wanted to share it anyway. Thanks very much for your support.

    I loved this photo SO much! Can't believe it didn't do better. No accounting for taste I guess.

    Great find for the challenge. The spider certainly looks pastel to me. The challenge description says, "Your photo should be obviously dominated by pastels." So, I would have ranked it higher had more pastels been displayed. Still in my favs.

    A most unusual subject for pastel . Love the detail in the daisy petals

    Thanks for the comments. FYI this was hand held using the standard 18-55mm lens. I use manual focus on close up shots so that I can get the dof where I want it. I find that autofocus tends to leave the foreground out of focus.

    Very nice! In my faves but if it uses a bit more of side lighting this could push it up a couple of places.

    Excellent macro shot, well-composed. Despite the spider's color, I don't get much sense of pastel .
