15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Spiders and flower

We grow a lot of flowers around our house, and one day while taking some pictures I noticed what I thought were seeds all over this azalea. It wasn't until I uploaded the shot and looked closely that I noticed that the seeds were newborn spiders. Interesting mix - I love flowers, not so much spiders.
