Little break from Odonata and competition with Horia. Today spider - Aranea diadematus. One could say - wow, Greg, how did you identify this spider in such hard to ID POV, you're master! Hehe, no :-) I just took few pictures of this nice guy including one with dorsal view. Sorry, no note today, I'm rather tired after hard work :-)

Siema Wieko,
Calkiem swieze spojrzenie na dobrze znany wszystkim temat ;)
Z DOF trafiles idealnie. Swiatlo ladnie podkresla szczegoly pajaka.
Fajne :)

Bardzo fajna praca, podoba mi sie 'artystyczne' ujecie, bardzo oryginalnie, dobra ostrosc,

Ok I have to admit to a deep fear of spiders, so I only looked quickly lol. I was drawn to look by the beautiful colours and the contrast and the sharpness. The pov is fascinating as well. So great shot.

Hello Greg,

What an interesting POV showing nice details of the spider. I like the light passing through the insect's legs and giving such nice colors.

Thank you for sharing,

Superb POV and composition.

Very well done,

Hi Grzegorz, again

that's the kind of picture I tried to shoot many times without success. It's all a matter of the light angles. Of course the composition is also top here: the whole web is the background. The result is fantastic. Extremely well done.
Best regards

Jestem pod wrażeniem. Bardzo mi się podoba. Doskonałe technicznie!!!
