I spotted this cocooned around a leaf and was quite mindless of the blowing wind. It looked quite scary at close quarters. I'm not sure about the ID of this species. Is this a "Neoscona rumpfi"?

Hi Subhro,
Great macro with appropriate oevrall exposure and excellent OOF BG.
The one thing I could point out here was that the entire spider is not completely in focus (eyes). Besides that a great composition.



Good sharpness and composition and you have got considerable DOF. Little post processing to burn out the very bright areas would have helped.

Subhro, no matter the focus or the highlights a little too bright, this is an amazing macro photo of this spider. I've never seen any species of this kind, but I take your word for it that is is indeed a live spider. The perspective, cropping, and angle are all superb! Great shot! JoeGoff, Louisville, KY
