Hi Haraprasan
I see for this first time this fight...spider VS spider!
Great shot, lovely details and colors.

Hi Haraprasan. What a terrific, perfect macro! You absolutely experton such kind of images!
TFS and regards,

Dear Haraprasan!

You have captured a dramatic moment, well underlined by the harsh(somehow too harsh...) light conditions. The details are very good, and I also like the composition, but the very uniform black background is, from my point of view, a little disturbing element.

Kind regards

Namastay Hara ji,

An exceptional action macro MF, you've captured nature at its best even though it can be quite cruel at times.
Excellent sharpness, and the dark background is perfect.
TFS and have a nice night!
