Good morning George,
Impressive, your spider-shot! Excellent light and sharpness reached with use of flash here. And a powerful composition. I like also the red borders of the leaf which bring a little bit of color in the picture.
Bon appétit to your jumping creature!
Have a nice day

Ciao George, great action shoot my friend, beuatiful jumping spider in action, fine details and splendid sharpness, I like a lot, ciao Silvio
A very interesting shot! How close were you actually to this spider?
I am no longer approaching them closely - I suffered too long from side effects of a (big)spider bite...
They always remind me of science fiction stories - I guess - the multiple eyes make them a bit frightening to envisage in sheep size...
Your carefully controlled depth of field make your work especially attractive and the ""bloody"" appearing edges of the leaves increase the sinister appearance...
Have a nice week
Greetings from Tzaneen

Dramatic scene, George.
Fantastic sharpness and details. Very beautiful natural and saturated colours. A scene with a red, like bloody, frame on the leaf. Great POV, DOF and composition.

Vaya pedazo de depredador, como cazan a animales dificiles voladores. Perfecta imagen y gran composición.
