Tiny Spider on a beautiful peach rose.

Don’s response

Without the spider this would be a nice but not quite so interesting a picture. Given its importance, I think the argument could be made for getting in closer to the heart of the picture.

Excluding the outer petals of the flower to fill the frame with heart of the blossom and spider would make a stronger shot.

As well, I’d be in favour of moving that distracting twig and leaf out of the frame so that the only subjects were the luscious peachy petals and the little interloper.
