[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an old photo I pulled out of the archives but I haven't posted in a while and I feel like a child not allowed in the playground when I don't have a new photo. See, I wanna play too!
So here's Charlotte in one of her last photos.
She moved into a young oak tree and from there I didn't see her again. I think she might have moved on to that big web in the sky.

It's nice seeing Charlotte again! Excellent marcro with good details and colors. She may surprise you and show up again.

Hi Angelina. A very good close up of your own spider. You have been saving this one for use. It has good clear deatil and rich but natural colours. a good POv/DOF well done TFS.

No way! I thought it was "everything is now clear" in the sky. If I am waiting on entering a big web, I might as well stay earth bound:-)
There is a special technique you use in your method of shooting that cannot be duplicated easily. When I try it, it looks terrible. Very nicely done.

Hey Angy,
A nice capture of the decisive moment in the spiders meal.
Well composed with good DOf,
Nick :-)

hello Angelina

what a superb focus you did, excellent details on the subject
i like the leke pastel colors background, and excellent dof



What I like about this Angelina is how the body picks up the colours. You got this with its legs out in a real good position. and managed to keep the strands of web in good focus.
Beauty of a DOF... and good presentation.
Have a nice week.

Hi Angelina.
Beautiful lighting, colour and detail. DOF is great, she really stands out there while spinning/ wrapping her next meal.


Thanks for coming by to play! ;)
Good one! Great composition! Well done! Cheers, Klaus

Hi Angelina,
This is an excellent macro!
You even put a name to the spider! :-)
It's so good the lighting, proper focus and sharp details got on the insect.
Exposure settings couldn't be any better, I really like so much the nicely blurred background at the back.
Congratulations and thanks to post it.
My best regards,

hello angelina,
nice shot, the bg looks lovely, sharp image, lovely colours, liked the pov and the composition too,
tfs & regards

Hello Angelina, this is a wonderful shot of a Spider in action with her catch. How hard it must be to focus and expose such a quick moment. She is a beautiful Spider and you obviously knew her well. Excellent sharpness with a perfect dof to set it off. I think it is a prize winner! Great light and colours. It may be that she just move on to another insect catching place.

Fabulous colours and details in this capture -- not a thing I'd want to see first thing in the morning (or last thing at night either!)!
Wonderful posting

Yikes as if my fear of spiders wasn't bad enough! Now I'll have nightmares about being wrapped up by some sort of spider! Actional this is a beautiful macro. The exposure is perfect, the details are sharp, and the composition is out of this world.

Hi Angelina,
this is a nice and gruesome looking shot of the spider with it's wrapped up diner.I rather like this photo as it shows just what spiders do and the details in it illustrate that well.Excellent green background as well.Thanks for showing us "Charlotte". Bob

Hi Angelina

Excellent shot - focus, exposure and colour are all excellent. I must admit my first reaction was - YUK - but then again, why oh why do I go hiking in rainforests!! :)

Hi, dear Angelina.
Thank you so much for your pleasant for me decision and kindness. I like your photos very much too. This one is so fine as others. Amazing BG for this attractive and perfectly reflected scene. Terrific sharpness and details, nice composition and impressive square cropping. My heart wishes and TFS.

You really think 'she' has moved on to the big web in the sky?
At least she left you with a lovely image "BEFORE" she took-off on you.
You captured a lovely moment.
Mario from the COLD.

Hi Angelina,
It is more than 10 days since you have posted anything. Hope everything is alright with you. This is a lovely capture with excellent details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

First of all I wanted to apologize because I added a photo to "Angelina's favourites theme" by mistake. I don't know how to solve my error, so sorry.
Anyway, this is a very nice macro, the lights are strong but beautiful offering a nice colour saturation. Composition is very nice too.
Thanks and regards, Felipe.

Hello Angelina,
This is a well composed presentation, DOF spot on and the spider stands out very well on the background!
Good details, and I like to see the web...
Pablo -

Beautiful shot. The colours and details look great.
