Hello Ciureanu,
What a fascinating snapshot.
I find the golden eggs and the almost fluorescent greens on the abdomen of these spiders just amazing.
Great moment captured with sharp details.
TFS. : )

Splendida captura ta de azi!
Oare ce insectute sunt acelea?

Buna Cristi,
Excelent macro si vad ca obiectivul lucreaza cu 1,4 converter foarte bine.
Foarte bune detalii si culori.

Hallo Cristi
A very fascinating shot and a 1st for me. It awakens different feelings that I sense looking at the image. As mentioned it is fascinating. It is colourful. It is strange. It makes me realize once again how wonderful nature that surrounds us is. It makes me grateful that people that belong to Trek Nature is versatile in what and how they photograph, this way the end product can be shared amongst fellow members who will never have the opportunity to see what you have just shared. On the one hand this is a wonderful image with lots of educational value and on the other hand this is an image with comical value as well because the subjects remind me of a packet of colourful jelly babies. Just this time some of them have legs. I would have loved to know what kind of spiders the "models" were. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Ciureanu,
Nive shot.
I'm not sure why you called this pic "eggs with mom". I think what we see is hetching. No mom. Only eggs and the 8 fresh newborns.
Thery are insects (6 legs + antennas) and not spiders (8 legs + pedipalps)
