Another shot from my weekend trip to Cebeci. This guy is the most bulky spider that i've ever seen! 15 mm length without legs, but you know, i said that the bulky one, so i mean about the heavy body :-) and has got huge web also, 60-70 cm diameter.

i think it can be an araneus nordmanni but i'm not sure...

Aperture priority mode, flash with -2 exposure.

Thanks for visiting...

Merhaba Ersin Bey.
Az önce bir fotoğrafa kritik yazdım. Fotoğrafta bir Yusufçuk benzeri böcek bir örümceği yiyordu. Dedim ki oh nihayet bunu da yiyen çıktı :) Sonra galeriyi tıkladım ki bu usta gelmiş karşımıza. Örümcek gerçekten usta mı bilmem (gerçi işinin ustası) ama örümceğin fotoğrafını çeken gerçekten usta! Bakış açısı, renkler, netlik hepsi mükemmel. Ellerine sağlık.

Hi Ersin !
Yes, it is truly a monster ! I really don't like these animals ! :-) But the photo is excellent. I love the pose of the spider, it looks threatening, ready to attack ! Sharpness, details, composition, POV, all these things are very good. Very well done !

Very nice shot, Ersin!
He really looks pretty big. About the web, i think you meant cm, not mm...should be about right :)
Nice POV, excellent usage of flash, great sharp details, lovely colors and superb contrast between the subject and the dark sky.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Ersin,
Cebeci seems to be a weird place filed with monsters :) As usual, you did great with this macro. It is very sharp with good POV, composition and DOF. I like the fact that we see a part of its web and I love the color of the BG! Regards,

Hi Ersin,
Yes you are right, it really looks like a monster. It is a wonderfull capture. So clear full of details with all sharpness i it.
Great work.

Hello Ersin,
Nice shot. Excellent POV showing the head/face and palps of this spider nicely..Very good detail, color, DOF, and use of flash. The dark BG works to isolate the subject, and the web is well seen in the frame :)
Very well done.

Hi Ersin,

Nice shot. Thanks for posting.
Have a great weekend.

Today in teh end i have time brows the pictures here. What to say except perfect composition, colours, contrast etc.
