Emmanuel Boitier - The Lily and the spider


A spider is waiting under a pink ghost in a secret forest… The Martagon is a common and widespread flower in the mountains of central France. Rich in pollen, it attracts numerous nectar gatherers and thus, consequently, numerous predators of insects.

Location: Auvergne, France

    Nice and soft pastel, the spider is the finishing touch!

    Such an intimate study of a delicate plant. This is plant photography at its best.
