Hello Friends,

I saw this little fella behind the leaf. I first ignored and then suddenly I saw this fellow moving and then I realised it is none other than our friend spider. I will post the full expanded portion tomorrow and I am amazed to see how then manage to fold their parts.

Spiders are predatory invertebrate animals that have two body segments, eight legs, no chewing mouth parts and no wings. They are classified in the order Araneae, one of several orders within the larger class of arachnids, a group which also contains scorpions, whip scorpions, mites, ticks, and opiliones (harvestmen). The study of spiders is known as araneology.

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Arachnida
Order: Araneae

Hi Ganesh,

A wonderful and unusual shot of this spider. The details and textures are excellent - those eyes are fantastic. I love the position of the legs.


Great spider and a thorough note.

Hi Ganesh, very excellent detail seen on the sleeping spider, right down to the eyes on top of his head. Colour is good, with excellent depth of field to give us full visibility of this spider.

Thanks, John

Your 180mm lens is quite powerful, Ganesan.
You have used it efficiently in capturing this macro of a Spider.
The image is very sharp and the details are very good.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Ganesh Ji,
What a seen. I think somebody has sucked this spider up. As I can see the whole on its back. But capturewise a very good one. Why didn't you used F14 ISO 400 as you have mentioned use of tripod. Any way a nice capture though. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Nice shot! U have captured a very interesting posture. Well focussed and good details. Thanks

Hello Ganesh,
