|Raft spider (Dolomedes fimbriatus)|
Size Female length: 13-20 mm (2)
Male length: 9-15 mm (2)
This large brown and white spider has long, sturdy legs and an oval-shaped abdomen. There are striking pale stripes along the sides of both the carapace and the abdomen. These stripes are due in part to a row of white hairs. Males are similar in appearance to females, although they have smaller abdomens.

Nice presentation of this spider in its natural environment. I would think also about some more dynamic POV.
This is really cool shot, Karel!
Nice details and pose.
