Hi Jitti,

Well done, you catch it at a great moment! Sharpness is really good! I wonder how they can eat such big preys… Those spiders fascinate me :)

Hi Jitti, really invisible spider.
Nice compa and colors.
Rich details.


Hi Jitti,
A real great captured! Beautiful and very weel camouflaged spider, good moment, lovely flower color and texture and a very good composition. I've removed a little dust in the right background in a WS:-). I hope you don't mind.
TFS, José M.

Hi Jitti,

Bravo et merci pour le partage...JP

Hello Jitti,
Interesting post! They usually bite in head not abdomen. The spider and prey have very nice details and colours. Nice POV showing the whole situation clearly.

Hi JC,
Wow! What a surprise, the thumbnail revealed nothing of what is actually going on here!
Drama of life very well captured, great details and excellent clarity in colours!

Great catch Jitti! You know the spiders are my favourites and this misumena vatia female is photogenic and very interesting kind. i like your pov and framing, sharpness very nice and the details great. This masked Zorro should be happy with that poor prey!
