Photographer's comments:

"One early morning taking advantage of the early hours of the morning, I wanted to try some macros in my garden and so I came across this Jumping Spider positioned on a Peach blossom while looking for some warmth with the first rays of sunshine. So I positioned myself and managed to take these shots before it moved. It is not perfect and I will definitely try again to improve."
