Interesting shot Steve,
Thats a big spider, I'm glad we don't get them that size over here.
Nice details, sharpness and clarity.
Thanks for posting

Very good detailed macro shot! Composition is great!

Magnifique ! The DOF is specially amazing and all the rest is spot on.
On en redemande.
Steve, I think he is on holidays - look at him - he's sunbathing! Waiting for good drink [i.e. fat fly] and enjoying the sun :-) Great picture, superb details.

Now, that's more like it. Excelent capture and well done on this composition.
Did I read right? The little ones will eventually eat Mama? Ah, poor thing. The cycle of life.
Now that's a cracker Steve, just how big was this one? Good composition and nice perspective with sharp detail. TFS.
Very well inspired these days, Steve! After your beautiful fungi, here's a spider in situation on the nest. Looks like a giant. The end of your note is a bit scary, but that's life! Do I see other spider legs close to an imprisonned leaf under the silk?

Hi Steve, a very interesting nest structure. Spider must be rather big. Light is a bit hard but still a very interesting photo.

It is a very neatly woven structure. Lovely composition and the details on the spider are great. Very well done.

Great shot and interesting information too. Will they really eat her??? Poor thing. I guess this means she only ever gets to look after one lot of babies. Amazing

Better on photo than at home. Was this one destined for Little Miss Muffet ? Well done.

PottyBoy, why do I have a feeling this arachnoid is 4 feet large at least and it can creep up behind me any second now ?

That is a fascinating picture. I never knew about that interesting spider, with its very unusual nest. Your photo is very sharp, with beautiful light and composition. I especially like the way the mother spider is sprawled over the nest, as in a protective gesture. Wonderful shot, really.
