Hemant! This without a doubt is THE BEST close-up of a spider I have seen here on TN!

Amazing shot, clearly showing SIX eyes! Untill recently I didn't know that spiders have up to EIGHT eyes!
Thanx for this razorsharp macro!!! I will tell my friends!

Also adding it to Themes! Tfs, Jay

Incredible!!! Amazing detail. I agree this is the best photo of a spider I have seen.

Hi Hemant,

Hello Hemant!
Maybe it looks deadly but really it looks also preaty :)
As for the ID this is (probably) species of Lycosidae family.

Hello Hemant,
Outstanding macro work with spot on focus and excellent colors, great job and thanks for sharing.

Honestly, I have never seen something like this,; this spider (???) looks like a lion! This is just stunning! ;-) It has so many beautiful eyes!

I'm sorry to tell but yes you look very deadly. Maybe you should hide those too weapons coming out of your mouth. We know it is full of venom and hooks. If we would see only your eyes you would look very cute. Yes you have beautiful eyes.

Please transmit this message above to the spider. They usually keep walking. Did you hold it in place while shooting or did it just stay there for you?


Well done Hemant !
This close up is impressive! It has enough dept of field to see all eight eyes.The small Coolpix has amazing Macro capabilities ! Good angle of view.
