Hello Marcus, nice shot. The POV is very good on the same level as the subject. It's a little overexposed but it's still a very good shot, well done.

Boa foto... boa macro...
Deveria ter pego com os dedos e colocado em um lugar limpo para dar mais destaque... He... He... (sorte eu não estar por perto... quem dá o palpite é que deve fazer...)
Pode não ser perigosa mas o tamanho assusta...!!!
I'm affraid of spiders, but to take the shot, without any doubt, was exciting for you. In this moment the photographer has not always enough time for camera regulations, so here is my point for you.
A great shot, probably a bit to oe, but nothing serious.
I held one of these a couple of years ago, they can't run apparently, although that's what I was told at the time!
Thanks for posting.
