Actually i wanted to bore you again with a nice fat
garden spider from today, but i just found this
hairy beast sitting on my balcony wall about 30 minutes ago,
so i thought i´d show him instead (and the g.s. tomorrow. *g*).

A second shot is shown in the WS-section.

Hi Thorsten
What a great hairy beast ,very nice,
Great composition,excellent.


Brrrrr - wirklich haarig - und so nahe - gruselig ....
Aber unwahrscheinlich scharf und interessant, ein Auge glitzert so schön.
Stell' Dir vor die wäre so groß wie hier auf meinem 17 Zoll-Monitor - ich würde mit Herzstillstand umfallen!
Bin jetzt wieder weg, zu aufregend bei Dir, tschüssi

Hello Thorsten,
Wonderful capture.Details on head,eyes,lighting,framing and composition are excellent.

Hello Thor,
It's wonderful shot of spider.

Good work

Nice macro.

The detail is amazing and focus good. How close do you have to get to the spider, yikes?

Composition is interesting, I think closer crop would possibly work better.

Nice shot and interesting close-up view of the spider.


Hello my friend! Christan told me you are on Nature also, so finally searched. This is a great pic, nicely detailed and ready for a bloewn-up version to display for Halloween. Definitely my wifes favorites, as long as there is glass between her and the spider, ever since she got bitten at my sisters cabin in Austria!
