Por cuestiones de trabajo he participado poco en el sitio y no doy abasto para comentar, así que disculpen amigos.
Entre la cooperativa, la escuela y otras obligaciones veo poco F-N, pero mientras uno trabaja tiene la posibilidad de tomar fotos.
Esta semana anduve ttomando la medición de medidores de electricidad en la zona rural de Monte. Andamos de a dos y mientras mi compañero de trabajo se bajó y entró caminado hasta un medidor por estar la tranquera on candado, yo me puse a investigar unos pajonales, quizás a ver si podía retratar unas maripositas marrones que casi no pude fotografiar. allí había langostas en cantidades, hasta que vi una araña, quise rodearla para fotografiarla mejor y casi choco con otra y luego con otra más! tres arañotas una de entre 4 y 5 cm de cuerpo y bien gorda, me dió algo de impresión, al final pasé la zanja subí a orillas de lo que hace 50 años era la vía de la trocha angosta, que iba a La Plata y al centro de la provincia, dispuesto a sacar fotos, allí me picó una avispa colorada que anidaba en las pajas, como luego me di cuenta y me hizo pelota el dedo índice izquierdo, me dolió la articulación 3 días! pude tomar unas fotos, pero la cámara por desgracia se quedaba sin pilas y no usaba el flash por ese motivo. A los dos días regresé porque pasé a 100 metros del lugar y usé flash como verán, ya que se ponían en contra del sol.
Abajo y atrás de las patas de la hembra más grande, se ven las patas del diminuto macho, que subiré la próxima.
Bueno.. no los aburro más con mi anécdota
Saludos a todo TNF-N

Hello Hernan,

Very nice picture of this spider. Very good sharpness. Superb colours, silver and gold :-)
Cheers,

Hallo Hernan
A stunning macro of this spider including the delicate web structure. All parts are really sharp, and details is really impressive. Lovely combination of colours and patterns on the body. Very interesting to look at. This is much bigger than my jumping spider I posted not so long ago. This one looks quite vicious, with that real long paws. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna

Hi Hernan,
Wonderful shot of this great looking spider with such sharp details and nice colours. Superb use of natural lighting and perfect exposed image. The blue sky as BG works well here and I like those shiny webs. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Hernan,
very well done and presented. The blue background does show off the spiders details very well.
I like how this spider is stretched out on in its net and shows off all its features.
Very nice composition and excellent sharpness.

Hi Hernan

A great capture of the underside of this orb spider etched against the lovely blue sky. This POF show us some interesting features and lovely details of the abdomen and other areas we normally don't see. Fortunately for your reply to my wife's critique I knew where to find the tiny male and I could not help then to feel pity for the poor chap. He is so small against this enormous female and he has to be so careful to dance to her tune, but then he probably will still end up being lunch or supper as well. I can promise you, I don't want to be a spider!

Anyway, as I said, you've captured good details and the blue BG compliments the subject. The colours are natural and the vertical composition worked well for the shot.

Good work MF and TFS.
Regards
Loot

Hi Hernan.
Simply outstanding picture of wonderful spider . Sharpness and colour reproduction, exposure and details are simply fine. My congratulation on so refined picture. Bravo.
Alexei.

Olá Hernan.

Há tempo que não visito sua galeria, também estou bem atarefado nos ultimos meses !

Bela imagem desta aranha, temos muitas destas aqui no brasil, é mais comum velas em areas que tenham pinheiros e gramado .

Abraços
