I have been participating in photography in one form or other since I was very young. It has been a passion that has not left me.

Most of my photographs are of natural subjects both above and below the water, with macro photography being my favourite.

I use Nikon gear and Ikelite housings.

    Very well caught Andrew !
    I find it hard to catch one of this species with legs extended.

  • Thanks, Trish.
    Are you shooting at night or during the day? While I rarely see them in the webs during the day, if they are, they tend to be more compact. By the way, this spider is huge. Her abdomen is over 2cm in diameter.

    Mostly daytime Andrew, when as you say they are usually more compact, or if out and about, run off quickly to safety as soon as I get close. I tried a few night shots, but need lashings of mosquito repellant before doing that again !
    She sure is a big girl … possibly an egg sac to appear soon ..

  • Argh! The mozzies. They get me at just about all times of the day.
    I’ll keep an eye out for eggs. I know where she sleeps during the day.

    Excellent Detail and lighting,infact a perctly composed shot !

  • Thanks, Corinne. She wasn’t easy. She was above my head so I had to hold the camera up an could only just see through the viewfinder from a distance. The composition was more trial and error than anything.

    I had one of those a few years back living in a clothes peg on the line, the egg sac was like a bit of green/brown fairy floss.
    Have recently had the pleasure of following both a St Andrew’s Cross and a Wolf through their procreation and have a few shots on here.

  • I’ll go have a look.
