[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Spider that lived in my back garden. This was a huge Spider and was very agressive if you touched the web it would be right out too attack. I used to feed it fly's and it got realy big. But i am sad to say i feed it a slug one day and the slug must have eaten a slug pellet and it killed the Spider.

Hi Mark,
You did great with this sipder, not easy to focus in its web like this. It reminds me of one similar I took but I think yours is better with sharpness. It is intersting to see them in its natural habitat. Good framing, DOF and POV, TFS'

What a sad story Mark. Well, you got a very nice memory in this capture. very good sharpness and colours. However I would prefer a different composition with the spider coming in from one of the top corners and a little more out of centre - that is a personal matter of course and not to make your picture less valuable.
