Oh my gosh, how do you bloody do that?? I LOVE that funny little face. Great light, great color, magnificent detail and despite the similarity in colors of the spider and the log it's on, there is no mistaking which is which. Super macro! Many thanks and kindest regards,

Hi Sergio,
Fantastic macro shot, great details, sharpness & colors. Well done & TFS.


A super macro! The only negative I can see is some oe areas on the abdomen (from glare). Wonder if shooting macros of arthropods with a polarizer would remove such areas? Something I will play with. TFS this incredible creature.

Best wishes,
