[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Les crochets à venin portés par un paire de chélicères constituent un dispositif de prédation redoutable chez les araignées. Je pense que celle-ci appartient au groupe des "araignées loup", mais je n'en ai aucune certitude.

Hi Herve. This what you call a macro shot. very good detail in the face . You have captured all the detail in the hairs and eyes. well done TFs.

Bonsoir Hervé
C'est assez effrayant de croiser un animal avec de tels crochets.
Même si ses yeux semblent marquer la surprise
Bravo pour cette Macro

Hello Herve,
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......What a monster!!!!
What Nick already did mention......This is what we call a macro shot.
Unbelievable how close the front site of the lens must have been to the spider.
Pity depth of field did'nt work out perfectly, you've nissed it by only one milimeter, to get the bigger eyes on top of the head, with the wonderful reflection of yourself in them, in sharp focus.
Details and clarity in the jaws are wonderful and this image is worthy of atleast a 2 point :) for the effort only.
Thanks for sharing this beauty :)
Best wishes,

Hi Herve,
A good close up macro, The pov is very nice and good detail but just alittle grainy. Good photo,

Wow Herve,
I am glad not to be in this creatures size. Excellent capture.

Pour moi aussi une Lycosidae... Beau fasciès !!
