wonderful and sharp picture of the spider and its shadow.
Structures appear particularly clear and brilliant.
A very attractive composition and a technically perfect picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Excellent detail and lighting. Gary
Another great macro from you, my friend and also a lovely and original presentation of this speceis. I had no idea that one could find a link between the "Cross spider" (as we call it here) and the Teutoni Knigts so fast :)
Your shot is excellent, with a full focus on the spider and excellent DOF to keep all of it in focus.
The details and colors are good, too and therefore the cross on its absomen is clearly visible.
Well done, as usual :)
Bravo and TFS
PS: my next photo is a d-fly again so i hope you didn't think you've won yet? :))

Gorgeous shot... love the detailed, and sharp markings on it's abdomen. Also like the earth colors. And the diagonal markings on the leaf adds to the feel of quickness and motion. A true spider crusader set to trap and feed upon the infidel enemies of the garden.

Its hairy little head looks funny to me.
Awesome patterns on the abdomen.

Piękny okaz, znakomicie ustrzelony. Bardzo ładne, neutralne tło z wtopionym w nie listkiem trawy, pozwalającym na ekspozycje pieknego cienia tego Krzyżaka. Niesamowicie dobra jakość ujawnia wiele drobnych szczegółów anatomicznych tego pajaka. Obszerny opis obok ładnie uzupełnia ten znakomity kadr.

Beautiful capture of this cross spider and its shadow. I like very much the composition. Excellent sharpness. Superb light and colours. The cross spiders are very numerous this year and they begin to be very large here.

A great macro image captured of this lovely spider. The top view gives one a good POV to see and appreciate the design of the markings on the spider's abdomen. I like the composition with the spider taking centre stage and the leaf running at an angle through the image. I don't know what the aperture setting was, but it sure gave you ample space to capture all the lovely details of the little arachnid.
Well done and TFS.

Great photography. Stunning image with clear details. The spikes and fine hairs on this spider is so obvious and clear, I will be able to count them if I wanted to. How wonderful is this site to share images, compare them and learn about all the different types of a kind. What a great planet with strange beauties. Your image of the spider is worlds apart from my image of a spider I posted a while ago, but they both remain beauties. Thanks for sharing. Much appreciated.
