2012, Day 137 - Hitchhiker

Some days you just feel unprepared.  In between errands I stopped to admire some spring flowers and while trying to find another angle I discovered this little guy.  It was a bright morning and I was shooting into the sky so it too a great deal of overexposure for the spider to be more than a silhouette.  Still, it would have been nice to have a flash for a bit of fill light, then the colors would have been a bit richer.  Nevertheless, I like this photograph and I really dig how the hairs on the poppy stem echo the fine hairs on the spider's legs.
