[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The spider was seen to be halting in the string on the line when walking in a narrow footpath in the mountain. Person's sign was noticed when approaching or it stopped right. It is a big spider that did patterned red, yellow, black body when seeing well. The spider goes up easily at a smart trot on the string and has disappeared when 3-4 piece flash is burnt and the shutter is cut.

This photograph is the one having taken it undeveloped woodland near populated area in Tokyo outskirts.

hello Mikio
very good picture with great details and super sharpness
very nice light with the Black BG
this is a Nephila specie
greeting lou

A finely coloured individual well caught by the flash Mikio, the darkened BG isolated this natural stance rather well. TFS it my friend.

Hello Mikio,

Great shot, TFS.

Hallo Mikio
What a beautiful spider with really lovely colours and markings, and above all one cannot miss those long legs. Even in the dark one can see the fine web thread which means that you used your flash to the best. A really striking macro that stands out beautifully against the dark background. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
