Hello Peter!
I recall your comment on a picture of mine recently. Regret for not having reciprocated there and then but feel happy that you have started posting again. Welcome back!
Assuming that the Harvestman is a fairly large Spider, it is a pleasure to see its main body and parts of its long legs within the frame.
The details on upper and lower abdomen are sharp and crisp. Wish we could see its eyes too, but lateral POV apparently does not allow that.
Keep posting and lending value to this otherwise dilapidated site.

Ciao Peter, great macro with fantastic details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Peter.
You captured it from a very unusual angle.
We can see upper and lower part of the body with its very long legs in the frame.
perfect natural colour.
best wishes,

Hello Peter,
Impressive macro of all these legs, carrying a little spider body. Great focus on the eye. Beautiful natural colours and a nice choice of composition.

hello Peter,
A wonderful macro shot of this Harvestman Spider. I'm glad you decided on this particular POV. Many times people want to show the entire spider and with legs as long as this guy has, you tend to miss out on the body detail.
Great job Peter!!

Impressive photo Peter! Interesting subject, wonderful lighting and very good sharpness.

Amazing picture, well done dear peter.

Lieber Peter,
Ja, das Auge dieses Weberknechts (im Oberwallis heissen sie Gredola) ist gut sichtbar, hatte es in der Natur nie so gut sehen können. Interessantes und originelles Bild. Und wenn Du wieder mal ins Wallis kommen möchtest, lass es uns wissen. Die Berge sind immer schön :-)
Herzlich grüsst
