Looks like jumping at you Gerhard :-) Great pose and composition, I like orange sign on its body. Very good note, too.

Very good work with the tubes. Great work.

Great job with your lens and extension tube, Gerhard. I intend to buy such a tube too. The effect of the blurring of the web around the spider makes it look a translucent glass; a very nice effet IMO. Bravo!

Well, at least this one remembered to shave its legs before posing for a photo, ours never do ;-))
Interesting critter, sharpness seems ok, and only the tips of the two top legs fall outside DOF range. Clean bg, good light.

This is an awesome shot, Gerhard. Great looking spider, but after reading your terrific note, I don't think I would want to get too close to this gal!

Great shot with very good point of view. I like spiders too but do not have any pictures of it. TFS.

Definitely a big nightmare Gergard. Spiders and moths I try to avoid. Please don't export it here.
Good capture on its web though. Well done.
Thank you Gerhard I showed it to my wife a she ran away :-)
Great shot, what's the white spot above the spider.

The Doom, the Doom, my kingdom for some Doom - these are one of those guys with the disgusting fat body that splats all over when you squash it.
They are fond of the bottom of window cills, and I just suffered some goosflesh thinking of cleaning them out.
That said, this is a very good picture, Gerhard, TFS, goos POV, compo and the hourglass is clear. 'n Giftige foto, mooi man!

Great one Gerhard, these are my favourite subjects and I still have to find some to post on this site. That will be my challenge this year. Many thanks for this one and it really is a scary one to see and unless you know spiders then my guess would be keep well clear. After seeing these films of jumping spiders who knows ;-)

Gerhard, scary and great picture with a remarkable POV. Composition and sharpness are great.
Once more, congratulations.

I should not have looked this shot so late at night, this is truly what nightmares are made of. The sharpness is excellent and this composition is really scary.
Very well done and thanks for posting.

Great shot, looks like he's going to jump out at us. Pity its not super sharp, but a well composed image anyway.
Personal assessment of the photo: great
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent
Degree of difficulty for the photographer during the capture (personal assessment): high
Degree of utility of the note: high: complete and very interesting
Comment: Gerhard, I test at present a new and personal way of writing my critics and you are among the first ones to whom I send it.
Any comment will largely be appreciated.
I like particulary the PoV here.
