Namaste Haraprasan,
Your focusing on this Crab Spider enable us to see its head and thorax with fine sharpness, while the rest of its shape is pretty clear. The prey is hard to ID but the whole image is well composed and interesting to see.
Thanks for sharing it,
All the best,

Hi Haraprasan,

Very beautiful colors and the beauty of a shot at the near.
The shape of head and prey on the spider's eyes, especially very interesting.
The eye is very nice details and composition.

Hello Haraprasan
fantastic hunting scene yaken from a nice POV, great focus on thee head of the spider, i love the beautiful colors and the wonderful composition
Have a good night

Hello Haraprasan,

a great scenery from prey and predator with fine colous.


Hello Haraprasan.
Raynox DCR-250 is a very powerful lens, which offers a high magnification, but reduced DOF quite a lot if you use it with dSLR. I only use it with my dSLR for very tiny subjects.
Here you have a wonderful focus on the spider face, excellent colours and beautiful composition.
Lovely action shot.
Best regards, Felipe.

Great focus and details at the head, and I like the contrasting color of the fly prey. Very narrow DOF with the raynox kit, always a trade-off when you use it on a zoom..
Well done.
