CommentI chose this image as the spider provides a point of interest in the composition. Otherwise it would just be another bird on a stick image. The spider with all its little hairy legs and colourful body draws the viewers attention (poor spider! ) . I also liked the soft colours in the background created by the different flowers in my garden. I was lucky that the Fairy-wren chose a perch with no distractions in the background.
