NICE! Very nice male Lynx spider! You can tell it's a male due to the enlarged pedipalps (not venom glands). Nice focus on the eyes and face. When shooting spiders, eyes are always important for identification. I can't tell what species it is for sure but it is definitely a male Lynx.

This is a very detailed and incredibly sharp macro! I enjoy looking at it, I know I'd be terrified if I was a fly!
Good pov and composition!

A very impressive macro!
I like so much the appealing POV and sharp details got on that couple of eyes.
The inclination worked great for the composition.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

a very spectacular face-to-face view with just the right focus.
The display window and the point of view have been well selected.
Light and colours are well balanced.
Best wishes, Peter

Goutham, Amazing picture. Details are amazing. You are right about the way the spider has been sporting its venom bottles.

Very impressive macro of this complicated looking spider you shot in Kerala, Goutham.
The focus on mid area is marvellous and those poison pouches look formidable.
I'm sure you guys must have had a great shoot in nature rich Kerala. Looking forward to seeing some more.

Very unique and beautiful macro! Perfect eye-contact and amazing colours. The spider's legs are so tiny but you kept details and DOF in very professional way!
All the best from Poland,

Nice shot. The pov seems to be very interesting. Sharply focussed. It seems to be a lynx spider. But r u sure about the 'venom glands'? Because I have never seen such structures in spiders.
