    Great capture! I love how vivid the detail is on him (or her).

  • Thank you. The lighting and the lack of wind (no swinging around) really cooperated with this shot. (This spider appears to be a she.)

    Excellent work! Your efforts definitely show through the quality of your photographs. Nice Job.

  • Thank you much, dasSuitGeneris, for your comment on my cross spider photo. The light worked well for me that day.
