I have to admit, I have a spider phobia and this picture is absolutely scary! It is an excellent macro shot of the spider and very sharp precision in the detail. The colours and light are good. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Paul,
This Garden Cross Spider must be one of the original experts at packageing and you have made a fine capture of it bundling up a greenbottle fly with excellent sharpness, lighting colours and set in a fine composotion.
Well done, thanks and it's nice to see you back in action on TN!
Merry Christmas, God Jul, Prettige Kersdagen and a Happy New year to you and your family.
