Hi Pauly,
I am not much up on Id'ing African spiders. I love photoing spiders but they always just creep me out, maybe that why I love them so much. Good focusing and DOF to get the legs. What is it sitting on Fruit, because its an intersting background. You could have used more light I think. Well done.

Hi Paul,

Fantastic picture of this big spider with great details & sharpness.
Cant say the ID but a new spider for TN. Well done & TFS.

Interesting spider Pauly! Unfortunately I can not help with the identification.

Hello Paul,
Nice capture of a very interesting species of spider.
Sorry I never seen it before and I can not help you with the ID.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Paul,

A fine & sharp image of this attractive spider on leaf. The aloe's hues really work well & enhance the earthy browns of this long-legged insect. All appendages in perfect focus with a choice Pov. Very nice work!



Hello Pauly,
I cannot help you with the Id as I cannot find it in my book of spiders but I would sure want to know what the name is. You've taken an excellent macro of this spider with good & sharp details. Very well done.

Hello Paul,
Great shot, nice colors, interesting light angle, nice spider with perfect textures an details. Well done!
Regards, TFS
