During a cave exploration i saw this cave spider, I think it is a Steatoda Triangulosa.
I took this photo without flash, tha light came from a torch!
I was withholding the breath obviously!

Well done!
The colors and the lights are very impressives!

This looks very similar to a common spider we have here in New Zealand.I don't know its name though.
So,you are a caver too? I do a lot of cave exploration here in NZ. Great sport !

I don't like spiders Fabio, but I do have to say that this is a good shot. Considering your light was from a torch, this is very good. Well done.
You and Steve will have to get talking - as he said, he's a caver too.

Quality isn't superb, but subject is very interesting. I love BG and golden light from the torch. Nice work and waiting for more!

This photo has compelled me to look at it several times before making a critique. The reason, I believe, is because I think of a "spider from hell" when I look at it. I guess that would be another title option for you?
Having said that, from a naturalist's POV, good capture of an interesting spider.
From the photographer's POV, excellent composition and creativity.
As a person who does not like spiders very much, yuck!

Great shot, perfect BG. The spider could be a bit brighter.
Well done.

Wonderful shot, perhaps a tripod might have helped but given the circumstances a very good picture. I like the background. Well done indeed!

Nice shot Fabio. Seems like a spider from hell indeed!
