This is another story of the lazy singer cicada, but this time with a little bit different ending. Our poor singer disturbed its neighboor spider by singing loudly.

I found this spider at the same spot on Cebeci shores like i had found last year, see below...


You may want to see a cicada alive and read the famous fable!

Fontaine's poor

Spider id is neoscona adianta...

Thanks to britishspiders yahoogroup for identification!

Superbe macro,bravo Ersin


Ersin merhaba,
Işık biraz fazla gibi ama netlik gayet iyi. Hikaye de ilginç. Mustafa

Hello Ersin,
Great macro image you are showing us here.
I can imagine that the spider did'nt like the singing cicada and told him to shut up, but apparently the cicada did'nt lissen to well or could'nt hear the warning of the spider because he did sing to loud :)
Very beautiful contrast, colors and details.
Composition with the lovely sky in the background is perfect.
Excellent work.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend,

This is a very impressive capture, Ersin. The sense of space with a lot of blue sky as the background is immense in this picture. Both the spider and its victim are very well captured with perfect details and colours.
It bothers me that you are unable to participate actively on TN for quite some time.
All the best and warm regards.

Merhaba Ersin
Çok oldu görüşmeyeli. Etkileyici bir makro. Tam zamanında çekilmiş. Ellerine sağlık.
Görüşmek üzere

Merhaba Ersin Bey,
Cekim aciniz ve fonda gokyuzunun olmasi cok guzel duruyor. Netlik ve detaylar da cok basarili. Elinize saglik

Awsum shot! The sharply focussed spider in front of the light blue sky (even the white clouds give more quality to the shot) looks like something straight from a horror movie. Great pov and composition. I don't know why it has recieved so few critiques. Anyways, grand shot.
