    OMG! I didn’t know spiders can be so complicated…. they seem to be so small and insignificant…. Super capture!

  • Thank you Olga. This was a very unusual and beautiful spider see

    At first it was ‘ewwwww’… well it looks like a huge hairy spider (but couldn’t resist having a look either). But then I found what it’s a macro of, and its such an unusual but amazing looking critter. Not some hairy huntsman at all. Fantastic photo… how do you get so close?
