Ciao Marco.

A mind blowing macro of this peculiar but beautiful Lynx Spider, Chris.
The body of the Spider appears as if it were made from some jade-like material. The colours and patterns on the thorax and abdomen are in exceptionally sharp focus and clarity.
It is yet another professional image from you.

Hello Christodoulos,

Best wishes,

Bonjour Christodoulos,
Most beautiful this all in green spider-picture. Very well chosen the diagonal pose of this Lynx spider. Sharpness is so perfect that we can see the slightest detail of this interesting creature. Amazing!
Have a nice week

Hello Christodoulos

I am amazed how your image is able to perfectly convey the translucence of the skin of these lynx spiders along with other details. Obviously good light, choice of POV and exposure must make that possible.
