Hi Claude.
Very interesting creature. I've understood after searched on Google "Araneus quadratus" this is a spider. I never guess at first. You have chosen very interesting POV to take tihs shot. Bravo and TFS.

Hi Claude.
This is really unusual and pretty shot. POV is extremely original. Colour tones, especially of BG, are expressive and delicate. Very nice artistic shot. My best regards and TFS.

Bonitos colores los de esta araña.
Buenos detalles.
Saludos Claude.

i marvel at nature and the extreme of the species and the adaptation to their environments
this one seems to have all the legs pulled in on some constructional scheme
brilliant and unusual colours

Bonjour Claude,

Am I looking up the "tailpipe" of this arachnid?

Glorious markings on the beasty! And very interesting PoV!
Seems to float in space, like a "darth invader"...

TFS, ;j.

PS The ID of this spider has me puzzled. Its colours and markings seem to be "off" compared to what I find elsewhere for "Araneus quadratus" aka "Four spot orb weaver". Could this be the (Araneus marmoreus)? [ I am by no means an expert on arachnids.]

Great shot all the same, eh! Au voir.
