Hello Dear Joydeb, two of my favorite photographer is my neighbour today in the gallery and both of you are a passionate nature lover.
This is an amazing spider, i found it at Shillong and at Ballavpur Sanctuary (Santiniketan) but unable to shoot a good image. You did it very efficiently.
Fantastic detail with good colour.
my best wishes,
samiran da
