That's a cool shot, whatever your intentions may have been. Excellent result! Was this done with the twin flash (for the two highlights)?

Thanks for your comments. :D I had not planned anything like what happened here: serendipity.

The lighting here is very special, Jody; like worshipping in a dim gothic cathedral. Great atmosphere. Totally unique, with the light at its most intense around the head, and falling off along the diagonal. Awesome!

What a gorgeous image, Nikola! Bright yellow, and dark background flattering your subject to the fullest. Beauty.

As for the yellow flowers, I think this is Common Tansy (tanacetum vulgare).

spider

This spider appeared on my window in the light of the sinking sun a few weeks ago. Can't say anything about ID, unfortunately. It is essentially backlit, but I used a reflector (casserole lid) to get some detail of the underside. The background is bush in total shade. http://www.math.auckland.ac.nz/...
