[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I inverted a 50 mm lens and shot this at minimum aperture. It's a green spider waiting for its prey on the petal of a Cassia sp bush. It's common to find these spiders on these plants once one knows to look for them.
What strikes me as odd is that the spider has a lot of green on its body, which isn't really great camouflage.

On a technical note, I should have used a flash.

Es increíble, casi no se ve. Vaya vista que has tenido. Enhorabuena y saludos desde A Coruña

Hi Pablo,
A beautiful species. The color of the spider is beautiful. As per you use of flash should be better. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hola Pablo,
Es una captura muy linda pero me falta luz.

Creo que hay mas opciones que el uso de flash. - una opción es subir el ISO y obtener mas luz con la misma velocidad, la otra es utilizar trípode con velocidad mas lenta.

Hay una opcion mas y es utilizar el Photoshop o algo similar... he decidido a intentar un workshop, espero que sea útil

Saludos, Shir
