I like the spikey feel of this one, but the honeydew-offering aphids aren't as clear as in the other, simpler picture.

I've been struggling to get a good picture of these guys, but it's tough. My lens is so short that I have to be very, very close. Generally the photoshot ends when I realize I have a mess of biting ants all over me. I'll take spiders any day! Posted by Picasa

I think the detail on this picture is amazing. I love the spikey edge on the leaves.

Thanks Oricon Ailin! It makes all the ant bites worthwhile. :)

Merci Beaucoup, Yves! Wow, it does look like we have many similar interests. Not many other people would be as fascinated with water on flat webs!
