Cette araignée-crabe attend patiemment sa proie. Ce genre de thomise doit son nom à son corps trapu et à son déplacement latéral. On voit ici six des huit yeux perlé que compte l'insecte.
Excellent camouflage.

Bonsoir Claude,

Très belle composition et très bonne netteté. Je ne me rappelle pas avoir vu cette catégorie dans la réalité. J'espère que cela viendra. Très belles couleurs naturelles.
Bonne soirée,

Well done, Claude.
Good macro. You achieved an excellent depth of field through the small aperture.

Bonjour Claude,
a well composed picture nicely showing this bizarre spider which is particularly impressive
due to the magnification and the sharpness. Fine bristles and the eyes are well seen.
Best wishes, Peter

Great macro, Claude. I like the details that you included and the almost square composition. Well done.

Hi Claude,
What a perfect rendering of a crab spider waiting in ambush my friend, the detail-in-depth provided by an f/16 is astounding, and the soft lighting emphasized the camouflage potential of the spider nicely. TFS and cheers,

Hi Claude,
Outstanding close-up shot of this great looking spider in a fine pose. Immaculate sharpness and clear details. Superb use of flash lighting and excellent DOF. Well chosen top POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonsoir Claude
Elle est superbe, en blanc, je l'ai vu en beige, et en vert, selon la végétation qui la soutient.
Merci pour cette très grande qualité d'image.

Hi Claude.
I was absent and missed your wonderful shot. This is first from them. It is amazing in every aspect. Great true macro shot with plenty fine details and crisp sharpness of the flower parts and spider. Flash work is terrific. We cannot see its negative displays. POV, cropping and framing are superb too. My best regards and TFS.

Hi Claude!
Beautiful documentary picture with very good DOF and details. I like the way you presented this spider species. Lovely colours and excellent example of camouflage in the micro world of invertebrates :)
Best regards,
