A very fine capture of this beautiful species of Argiope spider.
Apart from the sharpness and natural colours I like the composition with the wisp-like dead plant and the brown neutral natural BG helps to show it up well.
That Sigma 150 is a fine lens and you use it well.
Thanks and best regards,

Dear friend and F George,

Well dear Favorite, your pic is amazing ( you should already be outdated to hear that! ehehehehe)but...it is true! And...despite being a spider I love all the artistique arrangement that you did, the colours in "ton-sur-ton", the ( amazing) BG and the last but not the least ( ah!) the...sharpness.Something else? yes! Thanks for being with us!
Nice day George!

You must be living on another planet, beaucause you always have exotic creatures. Just joking, Africa is exotic without being outerspace.
Very good POV placing you again (that's your secret) in a parllelle plane with the sensor plane, acheivning this way a beautifull plane of sharpness. The shallow DOF creates a nice Bokeh. Fill flash is well gauged to complement ambiant light without overpowering it. Beautifull fine delicate details as the web demonstrate your "mastering" of closup photography. Beautifull work and TFS.
Another very exotic animal, this spider. Is this living in the wild? The quality of the photo is high. Excellent in all aspects. And very beautiful too.

primero muchas gracias por tus amables comentarios, y más viniendo de un buen fotógrafo como tú.
La fotografía que nos presentas es excelente por muchos motivos, ya que no solo te centras en el
arácnido, sino que nos recreas todo su entorno.
Buen encuadre y equilibrio del conjunto con unos colores bellísimos.
Un saludo desde España: Josep Ignasi.
