DSCF7731 Harvestman on Asclepias

These challenge depth of field, but are easier to capture photographically than ever-moving bees, which are very scarce this year. I didn't use flash for this image and it wasn't bright out in the early morning so I had to use a large aperture, but as with most digicams, f/2.8 gave very decent depth of field.

A difficult subject for sure to get all those legs and the body in focus!
