Congratulations vida van der Walt
A study in black and yellow

Black-spot Flower Crabspider and prey. This is the biggest crabspider I've found to date. It is amazing how well these spiders blend in with the flowers they sit on.

crop, shrp, nr, levels, slight desaturation of yellows (not that it helps much, you almost need sunglasses to view this )
