Outside the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, there is this magnificent huge spider. I was under it, and you can see her belly carrying eggs.

Hi Maria,

Difficult conditions you were under (:D). This view of the spider is in shadow against the lit sky. Difficult to get the right exposure.
I think you did well on that.

I like the composition and in my opinion the centered body is great with the legs going in all directions.

I think maybe a wider shot with more legs might improve the shot.

That is an amazing image!
I like the way you have handled the light under these VERY difficult conditions.

Argh, odio a las arañas, pero es no le quita la buena composición y perspectiva de la imagen. Saludos!

Hello Maria Jose

A well seen and captured original idea for the theme here. What an amazing structure this appears to be. Do you have a full view image you could post another time?

TFS and for joining in the theme

kind regards Helen

P.S. sorry for the delay in visiting, TL has been very slow.

Helo Maria José
Wonderful POV and fantastic sharpness with a great detail and a great compo.
Congrats, mb
