Hey you - TN-Member - look what nice teeth I have!

I'm a white Crab-spider and I'm called with this name because of my first two pairs of legs, which are held out to the side giving me a crab-like appearance. Also, like crabs, I'm moving sideways and backwards more easily than forwards.

This inconvenienced person - called "wishnugaruda" - found my hideout in the blossom of the rhododendron and irritated me with her flash - hope she will never come back!

Hi Stephan &Sabine,
Awesome shot with pin sharp detail and outstanding POV. Bright brilliant colours are an added bonus. And those eyes........incredible

Hi Sabine,
This is an awesome macro, very well done indeed! I really did wonder about the surruondings here, until I read your note...
Well framed... Superb details and colours!

Wonder work, TFS.

Halo 'Wishnu',
beautiful composition of colours and also structures, meaning the corresponding curvature of white spider legs and purple stamina of the blossom. Furthermore the spider's eyes are fascinating though not sexy.
Best wishes

Hi Wishnu,

A fantastic picture. Good POV, DOF an amazing colours. I love it...
Great job.

Hi Sabine, I recognise this crab spider now when I see it posted. This one looks quite attractive(!) especially against the pretty pink of the flower. Very good sharpness and details. TFS

Hi Sabine, I like this version better, that's a cracking lens you have. Had a Tamron 90mm on my old Olympus OM2sp it was wonderful.
best wishes
Rob :)

Hi sabine,

It is a very nice shot of this spider. A lots of details and perfect sharpness. The colours are also very nice. Well done

aaahhh, und hier die perfekt-scharfe version.
eine wunderbare aufnahme, sabine! :-)
ich hoffe, du konntest dich noch abdrehen bevor sie dich
angesprungen hat. *g*
exzellente pose, bereit zum angriff, und wahnsinnige details-
nicht nur die "zähne" sind toll, mir gefallen die gelben
augen am besten.
zu erwähnen wäre noch, dass krabbenspinnen ihre farbe dem
jeweiligen hintergrund innerhalb weniger tage anpassen können.
ob diese allerdings dann lila sein wird?
viele grüße & gute nacht, thor.

Hallo Sabine,
In Normalgroesse sehen die ja harmlos aus, aber in deinem super macro kann man wirklich Angst bekomme. Klasse Schaerfe und super Bildschnitt.

Hallo Sabine,
spektakuläres Portrait der Krabbenspinne im bizarren Mikrokosmos ihrer Blütenfalle.
Hervorragende Detailwiedergabe und starke Komposition!
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,

Great capture Sabine,
I hope you do go back to get some more stunning shots like this one.
Good detail, colours and very sharp. exposure and lighting are good. Good POV and composition.

Thanks for posting, have a great week. And good luck against Sweden on Saturday :)

Wooooow ! What a SUPERB and interesting close-up that you have very well done ! Composition, colors, exposure, DOF and sharpness are very good. I like very much the colors and shape of the flower under the spider. Nice note too...
Congratulations Sabine and thanks for sharing.

Hi Sabine!
Nice to meet you Crab-spider :-) You're real beauty, detailed and sharp. I like your inviting pose and your colorfull flower. Your home looks like piece of tropical reef!

Fantastyczne makro Sabine. Bardzo ładna kompozycja, idealna ostrość w idealnym miejscu. Pozdrawiam Robert.

Awesome shot Sabine!
Luv the head-on POV with eye contact.
Perfect exposure, lovely dramatic colors, and sharp detail..Very well composed, excellent DOF..I think what I like most of all is how the spider sits at the base of the OOF curved stamen, leading the eye in..
Very well done!

Fantastic macro shot with very vlever handling of the light and fill flash. Very good sharpness and spot on dof. I like the composition with the spider out of Centre.

Great job Sabine.

Hello Sabine,
Awesome picture, the composition with these beautiful violet & white colours is great; the details are spectaculars. The focus on head accentuates the menacing pose of the spider.

Wunderschoene Aufnahme dieser variablen Krabbenspinne. Bei dieser Vergroesserung sehen die Pollenstaebe aus wie entrueckte violette Schlangen. Die Spinne sitzt auf diesen violetten Schlaeuchen wie Sankt Michael au dem Drachen. Alles ist maerchenhaft schoen und etwas ausserirdich. Rasiermesserscharfe Details, und soooo gute Schaerfentiefe (das Kameraobjectif ist ausgezeichnet, auch bei vollkommen geschlossener Bende!!!). Danke fuer diese Praesentation. Patrick

This is a very pretty shot. The details and lighting are optimal, but the scenary captured is wonderful.
Very arty and creative, TFS.
