A beautiful rose that I photographed in a friends garden, wasn’t until I looked closely that I realised that there was a ladybird at the top and a tiny spider between the lower petals. The petals also have a somewhat leathery look to them.

Canon G9 18.9 mm ISO 800 1/1250 at f5.6

Note: High ISO and shutter speed was used because there was a strong breeze (this has caused some graininess but I think this adds to the overall image)
