Hello friends in TN.

I was visiting my grandmother this morning and she was happy to show me that the pumpkin that she planted started to blossom. I spotted this tiny spider hovering on the flower and managed two shots before it disappeared.

ID appreciated and rather curious about the other two legs as well.

Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
The yellow BG provided by the pumpkin flower is great to show this spider that you have caught from the rear with fine sharpness and DOF. The ID is a mystery to me. This shot is sharp enough to show the stumps where the two legs are missing: the third leg on the right and the second on the left. One could speculate on how it lost them!
Thanks and all the best,

Hi Jusni.
Simply terrific macro shot. Amazing scene at whole and great POV selection. I am amazed with exceptional details of the spider and texture of the plant. Bravo. Perfect work. My compliments and kind regards.

hello Jusni

this is an superb macro photo of the spider with the fine
frontal POV, fine DOF and the way it is framed on the image,
a superb focus with great sharpness and details, TFS


Buen enfoque al motivo y una superficie de base casi ideal para el mejor contraste. Buen encuadre. En la parte inferior quizás sería interesante recortar un poco ( a mi gusto ).
