I like this one too, Alejandro.
But the white space between the green and black strain my poor eyes, but it is not your fault.
Good shot with interesting details.

Hi Alejandro,
nice capture of this spider. The white OE area in the BG strains the eyes a bit as Gudule mentioned, and the BG has some noise. You would have captured more detail at a larger f/stop (2.8 for a macro is usually too low) and avoided the OE. The focus is spot on, which was bound to have been difficult at 2.8. Well done!
I am not sure which parts you refer to as eggs, maybe I just don't see what you refer to. In the net or on the spider? I can see the little "flexibility knots" in the spider net (if you come macro-close you start to see them, this is a kind of rolled-up extra line that makes the web more flexible if under strain, as the rolled-up line will then start to give more material). I also see markings on the spider and light reflecting in three of the "hairs" on the leg at the top - or maybe something sticks to the legs after all, not sure.

Hi Alejandro,
this is a very good shot. Great POV and very good details. Good visual impact. TFS.
