I donīt spiders at all. But your photo is very good. How far you was when you made this photo?

I like spiders Steve. Lovely pose of this one - like saying - mine! mine! mine! Picture slightly overexposured in some areas but great subject and composition. Good work!

Steve, I bet I'd run faster than your wife if I saw one of these. They live in the bush, don't they. Please, no where near Murrays Bay I hope. It's a pity the spider is hard to see here, but it is good for you to show it. TFS.

Spider is camouflaged...Photo doesn't have the best quality (as you'd written the faults) but with your perfect notes it's good.The main subject 'Nurseryweb spider' detailed very well...TFS
Hello Steve, Good detail & the molluscs make it an interesting & out or the ordinary shot. Other than than the mentioned over-expose it's a great shot. Thanx!
Excelent capture, to bad about the exposure. Well done on the composition.
I did a workshop to help abit.
Hi Steve, it's a lovely spider. Dolomedes belongs to the family Pisauridae (we call Pisaura mirabilis the Nursery Web spider). In the UK we have two speices of Dolomedes - D. fimbriatus and D. plantarius, the latter is very rare and is protected - you even need a licence to photograph them. Dolomedes hunt on water and low vegetation. I have a few pictures of D. fimbriatus in my collection. These are great looking beasts - does this species walk on water?
The photo is very dark in places and as you say overexposed in others, it's saving grace is that the eye can be seen. Good work Steve.
