spider on a weed

wasnt getting much luck with the sunset shots and found this little guy. Only had my kit lens on me but made the best I think.

Square cropped as the edge just had a messy second leaf thing, booted the colour very slightly to bring out the blue. opinions please.

Re: spider on a weed

Looks goo to me. You could crop it a bit closer too so the spider is more of the focus.

Re: spider on a weed

I think the crop is fine - perfect, even. I'm not sure if I like the faint trace of yellow still visible in the flowers and wonder if it would be better to have either a little more of the colour or a true silhouette. I like this picture very much indeed.
