Great shot! It just goes to show that perseverance pays off in the end. I like the sense of depth in this image and the spider looks ready to pounce! Great work!

it is difficult to take pictures of spiders inside their home. In this case, there was sufficient light
to show the 'web owner' against the darkness of the interior well highlighted and sharp.
Excellent point of view and depth of field to present this scenery.
Best wishes, Peter

I love the setting here, wonderful to see the spider in his lair. He looks very sinister lurking there. Great macro work and an amazing POV. Well done for doing this

I'm very glad too see so many pictures of spiders in your gallery!
These fellows are a tricky subject, I agree. They are suprisingly quick to dissapear into their borrows and since the entrance is usually somewhere among grass it's not that easy to get a decent POV. I've had very often problems with geting good shapness too. This is because the entrance is very often in a shadow and the spider is quick, so you haven't got a lot of time to get the focus right.
Anyway, I think you did a preety good job. The POV is definitelly very good and the sharpness good enough.
PS. I'm quite interested to know which field of physics are you into?
