Amazing detail and the colors are displayed brilliantly. Really, I can't state how amazing I feel you did with this photograph! May I ask what kind of camera you used for this shot?

Wow, both freaky and amazing!! Weird to see something so close up that we otherwise wouldn't be able to see! Don't know how you caught this, but well done :heart:

Lol.. =) I'll take that as a compliment. I didnt like spiders before I started taking pictures of em.

It was a compliment :D I don't think I could get close enough to a spider to take it's photo...so there's very little chance that doing so would change my feelings towards them ;)

Hehe. =) Once I started taking a shot of a spider, I was lying flat on the floor with the little guy infront of me. I was looking through the camera focussing when suddenly the little guy jumped towards the lens. You should have seen how I through the camera by side and jumped up with a huge scream!! :D :D :D

Scary looking :) I don't like them, they seem to love to attack me :D And I'm bit allergic, last time my hand (the palm part) was swollen for a week :D

It can be real dangerous if your have allergic reactions to a sting. :( As long as you stay calm they wont do a thing, but its easy for me to say (dont have any allergies). Thanx for the comment! =)

Hallo :wave:
Wow wirklich geniales Bild! :+fav: und ich finde die Farben wirklich Spitze. Es gibt nichts daran auszusetzen.
Mir ist nur ein Rätsel wie man sowas macht. Seh ich das richtig, dass du 2 Objektive benutzt hast und davon eins "verkehrtrum"?

They are pretty harmless as long as you leave them alone. If you start jerking about then they become aggitated. ;-)
