Hello Lou,
A superb capture of a Silver Argiope, wrapping up its prey in the middle of its fine web. The spider is seen with fine sharpness and the wonderful pattern of the web is well shown in a fine composition.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Lou,

I have never seen such a beautiful web! I'm sure the poor ladybug isn't telling the spider how his web looks just like lace. The spider is wonderful with his lovely silver color.

Hallo Lou,
Het was wel even goed kijken voor ik in de gaten had dat er een grote spin over het web stond. Wat een prachtige camouflage. Dit web is ook heel bijzonder.
Fantastische foto! in een erg mooie compositie.

Ciao Laurens, great action shoot with splendid spider, amazing macro with fantastic light, wonderful details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hola Laurens.
WOW. Great super macro. High quality lavel. Very sharp and excellent moment.

Hello Laurens, great close-up shot of a spider and its web.
TFS and regards,


This is a great shot. There is so much going on and you have captured it very well. You are right, the web is beautiful. I have never seen an inter-part of a web that looks like this. It almost looks like a drink coaster. Then you have the spider and the bug.

This is nature at it's best.

Thanks - Bob

Hi Laurens,

This is one beautiful spider shot. Amazing details in the process of digesting the prey. Well done and TFS.

hello Lou,
Vey interesting spider-web, looks like a lace-work! Amazing also to see the spider just working on a poor ladybug.
The white part on the top left is disturbing a little bit, but you couldn't do it better, considering the distance you had to the web.
Thanks a lot

Hello Laurens !
Big ugly spider caught poor Ladybug, and you, you caught a great moment of life and death ! I also like the shape of the web, it's strange in the middle, but very beautiful. Excellent details, nicely composed, very well done !

Hello Laurens,

Here is another spider I photographied in Venezuela 2 years ago. All the Argiope build this kind of structure whose goal is not clear. Here the structure you photographied is awesome!!! And the dark bg let us see it very well. Bonus: the spider has a prey!

Well done!


Impresionante y artístico documento: preciosa !!

Bellisima foto, que nitidez y momento captado, te felicito.
