As i did not see a Garden Spider (Araneus diadematus)
the last 4 pages i thought i could show one of mine
i took 2 days ago in the garden at work.

i did not take many macro-shots this summer, so i was
a little out of practice, but i could not resist this
nice fat spider.

for more photos and information please have a look
at the Garden Spider Theme.

thanks & have a great sunday! :-)

Hello Thorsten!
Maybe it is another garden spider from your colletsion, but this is also another very good picture :) I like composition and colours of this photo. Also details and sharpness are very good. This picture strongly reminds about autumn period too :)
TFS and best regards from Lodz,

Hi Thor

A very nice add-on to your already impressive garden spider gallery and theme.
You may have not taken a lot of macros this summer, but allow me to say your's still in shape :)
I really love the sharp details of the spider as well as the spot-on DOF. The flash management is also very very good.

Bravo, my friend and good to see you again!

Hi Thorsten!

Very nice macro. I like light and brown colours. Spider is detailed and in nice pose. Dried flowers on BG made really autumnal composition.

Hi Thorsten.
One of the best shot of this spider (imho).Terrific sharpness , details and colours of the insect, one of the most wonderful BG, DOG is selected extremely well. Framing is outstanding. Bravo. Superb done.

Hi Thorsten
Interesting POV, perfect sharpness and DOF. Nicely composed image of garden spider. Great light, nice natural effect with spiders web
I like it very much

Excelente luz y enfoque Torsten con agradable
composición. Colores reales y muy vivos, por
lo que da sensación de realismo. Muchas gracias
por tu ayuda en la identificación de mi Oligolophus hansenii.

Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Hi Thorsten!

I'm always pleased to see a spider capture. I just love these wonderful animals.
Lots of details and beautiful colors. The lighting and clarity are just great.


Hello Thorsten,
Colourful and well composed. Sharp where it should be and you made an excellent blurred background.
