    Wow, this little critter leaves near you? Nice catch, humm, may be it is still alive somewhere?

    So - I opened this thread - saw a fat, hairy spider - and had shivers going down my spine!

    Good shot though. Not one I'd be likely to get due to the closeness of the fat hairy spider!

    Frankly could almost feel it breathing on my neck. One question did you crop this photo. I think the entire spider would have been an interesting photo also. Great job keep up the good work. JimC

    Franky,

    How large is this spider? And how did you get the lighting from the bottom?

    Hi Bill.

    First, sorry for my english. It's not my mother language.

    The spider has approximately 2 cm long. (3/4 inch).

    It was a hard day to take macro pictures because was a very windy day, I focused manually and the net was moving all the time.

    The shoot was take near of sunset time, then the back light it's coming from the last ray of sun.

    This spiders are usually in the net on his back then I shoot with my knees down trying to get his face, of course, the picture was rotate 180 degrees.

    Regards.

    Franky,

    Don't worry about your English - you are very clear and I understand everything you're saying. Being an American, I hear worse English from folks who claim it is their first language!

    Hearing a bit more about how you managed the shot makes it all that much impressive. Very well done! Keep them coming!

    In fact, if you wouldn't mind, I'd love to see the uncropped version.

    - Bill

    Several post up I said was 2/3 of real size, I was wrong, It's approximately 1/3.

    Here is the original shoot.

    What an interesting spider! I think your crop works fantastic, but it is always fun to see originals.
