[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this spider in my garden in Otley, near Leeds. I watched him for about 4 days during which time I only saw him (her?) catch one insect, a hoverfly. I was testing out my new ring flash and macro lens (Tamron 90mm F2.8) with a 20mm extension tube. I used the remote shutter release to avoid shake. I still have a lot to learn about Macro and would appreciate any critiques/comments. Also, does anyone know what kind of spider it is? I have been looking on the internet but found nothing yet.

Good shot Les.

I have had to re-register as K10D due to Bahrain email being closed!
