Excellent shot Gerhard! I myself am a bit of an arachnaphobe, but, you have done a wonderful job here. Your note goes to show that once again we should leave natures creatures in nature and not try to turn them into pets!

Very nice hairy spider, me I like them ( my job to save them in our house from being stamped on).Lots of good detail and colour. next time try sacrificing some of the shutter speed to give you a better Depth of field, these digital camera seem to have very good image stabilisation software built in, look forward to the next monster in the bath ;0)))#
Welcome on TN Gerhard. Great first post. I am fancy about spiders too - very interesting creatures. The size you mention of this one (up to 9o mm) soes that include legs?
I like the picture, the pose, the colours and the details. Great job and a very informative note. Thank you very much for sharing.

Great stuff! Very good detail and depth of focus. I reckon this beast has been through the wars at some point. By the looks of it, especially comparing the forelegs, this por thing has lost and regenerated a leg at some point.

Great shot Gerhard. Amazing detail and very informative note. I nearly stepped on one of these guys while I was walking along a road in Namibia, and not paying enough attention. I tell no lie, it was as close as I'd ever come to soiling myself! :0

Maravillosa imagen Gerhard.
La atinada iluminacion produce un efecto de sombras muy bonito.
Excelente encuadre y presentacion... los colores tan parecido entre la araņa y el suelo brindan un resultado perfecto.
Wonderful image Gerhard.
The accurate illumination produces a very pretty effect of shades.
Excellent frame and presentation... the colors so similar between the spider and the ground offer a perfect result.

wow - I must show this one to my family - will surely give some screaming ;-) - Great Macro - and too bad people can't keep there hands to themself - nature preservation a must.
This is a great image here! The details and exposure are excellent. One thing confuses me though... am I counting 10 legs? Or 8 legs and 2 arms?
Good note and textured background too.
