Excelent first wasp spider, the details and colours captured are great; I like the perspective of the spider and its web.

congratulations - you made a wonderful shot of your first one. I also had the pleasure to see my first this year, but not so nice than yours with the Zig-zag-web, mine were at the ground in the grass.
Thanks for yours beautiful shot, bye

Another sucessfull experiment! The picture is very nice despite the harsh conditions and its quality is great, even though you used such a high ISO.
The POV is interesting, the details are nice, clear and sharp, the lighting is well managed and the colors are beautiful.
Very nicely framed and composed, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

An excellent POV of this spider, Jaap.
The details are very clear, and the web is well-shown.
The light seems a bit harsh, but the colors are coming through quite well.
TFS. : )

Lovely colours captured, it is easy to see why the insect got its name!
Good framing of subject, DOF spot on and the web visible...
Well composed image with good details!

Ik ken heel wat spinnen hier bij ons in de beurt, maar deze zie ik niet bij ons. Ik vind het prachtig hoe u tewerk bent gegaan met de opzet van Tamron, het resultaat mag gezien worden, alle details zijn gewoon fantastisch, samen met de werkelijke kleuren, wat is onze natuur wonderlijk nietwaar!
Goed gedaan Jaap.
Groeten en prettig weekend,

I know this spider very well and often have met it. Your shot is very nice, well exposed and compose. The details of the spider and web are very good. But colours of my shots and yours are different. My compliments and TFS.

Dit is een hele mooie macro, Jaap. De poten en het lijfje zijn prachtig, met de paarse gloed. Scherpe details en prima compositie. De note is ook erg leerzaam en uitgebreid. Prima werk.

Superb colours and clarity, Jaap. You have done wonders with your equipment.
I like the saturated colours and the angle of exposure, giving a fine view of the spider's back.
TFS and bye.

What's with this psychedelic/fluorescent spider? Very interesting reflections you captured on this beautiful arachnid.
A lovely composition showing clearly the stabilimentum and the design of the web. Excellent colour reproduction and good details are visible almost throughout the entire field of the spider with only the tips of the frontal protruding legs that lack a little in sharpness. The BG is well removed and OOF while the more or less even green colour compliments the spider very well. You’ve managed the exposure rather well and good application of the fill-in flash.
Well done and TFS.

Tones are a little too purple.
Pic should be ratated 180 degres, as the head should point below, and the white thing on the web too.
Background is brilliant and enhances the beauty of the spider.

Hello my friend... nice macro with suitable colors, clear and compo.
I like it a lot: composition, colors, POV, sharpness, DOF, focus, lighting, background, framing, notes.
I don't like it: nothing to argue.
Best wishes... Ricardo

I'm glad to see this spider in your gallery. It's a lovely species and nice to photograph as well.
The picture is nicely framed and has very good DOF. I really like the colours of BG, but the spiders body has strange blue cast which doesn't look natural.
Overall, good job on this one!

I wish I ever found a "wasp spider" as imaculate and beautiful as this one.
You captured it with plenty of details and colours, it looks quite a bit too magenta in the reflections, but gives it a very fancy look :)
Thanks vry much, MF... keep well!
Best wishes, Felipe.

You must be wondering why I went back to one of your older postings to award my smiley. I just adore the colour purple and your photo "My first wasp spider" jumped into my face, and I could not ignore it. This is a brilliant captured photo with lots of colourful detail and features. Well composed and presented. The blurred background brings out the detail of the spiders web to the foreground and emphasise the dazzling colours of the spider well. Thanks for sharing.

Nice spider capture Jaap,
I like the web so well shown, with the center zig-zag running through.
Good BG, colors, and details.
Well done & TFS!
Een schitterende opname van deze tijgerspin. Scherp, goede POV en achtergrond. Het web is ook zeer goed zichtbaar. Wat mij opvalt is de rood/blauwe zweem bij de spin. Als ik ander foto's van deze soort op TN vergelijk is die niet aanwezig. Dat is jammer. Ik weet niet de oorzaak hiervan. Heb jij er een verklaarbare reden voor??
In ieder geval blijft het een plaatje om de lippen bij af te likken.
Prettig weekend en tot TFS BOB
