Great macro ! Good colors and DOF ! Well done.

Welcome to TN Ricardo intresting 1st posting, lots of details to be seen very nice. I would liked to have seen the web that the left hand lags are resting on , as it is , it looks a little like it is floating in the air.

Ohhhh yum yum. I like spiders and this has everything! Brilliant picture. Well done!

Wow, nothing like seeing nature go in for the kill. Superb detail and razor sharp, top macro. I'd be interested to know a little about the equipment you used to take this shot.

Welcome on TN Richardo. Great picture of this spider at her dinner table. Great colours, well blurred background and dof spot on. Just keep them comming.

Ricardo, I have got to be one of the world's biggest arachnaphobe's but my gosh!! This is an incredible shot, gives me the creeps. Exactly what nightmares are made of!!

You have done your job here sir! You have depicted emotion and wonder with your work.

I missed this at first but got to it today. This is a superb photo of a spider. (my favourites) Extrem macro, Great DOF, I love it. Thanx for sharing.

Very nice macro moment (not for the fly!)
Composition is nice but a bit tight.
Excellent DOF but I wonder if the hair on its back can be made sharper by a little bit more?

A beautiful and interesting macro!
The details are very good!

Excellent closeup. DOF and colours are very good.

Great job

Hi Ricardo!
a very interesting and dramatic moment of wildlife very well captured with great DOF , colours and composition!
well done!
