Hello Sigi,
Nice macro of this spider in excellent sharpness and details. The spider and grass ear contrast beautiful against the the green background.
Have a good weekend,

Hello Siggi, dear friend,

Hope you are well. As you had not seen my bird, I have not seen this species of spider or the like of it here in Pakistan if I am not mistaken. I am your admirer friend and you take photos with such precision and art that whatever the species of reptiles, birds or insects, they are astounding shots always.
This one on a tuft of some kind of wild grass sits in an ominous fashion with its legs reaching out to the stem.....marvellous shot indeed!
Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,
best regards,

hallo Siegfried
