Ok, this might make me look weird but am I the only one to notice a "human" shape just below the spider's fangs? The human is in a lying down position with arms outspread, as if crucified. Gives the image a more sinister tone! If you can't see it, look for the bright green circle just underneath the spider's fangs - that would be the head. Follow the green for the rest of the body.

Aside of this, I like this image. It's powerful and the portrait orientation suits the subject perfectly.

I must say I have some sympathy with this point of view Fred but notwithstanding that this is still a heck of a good shot full of marvellous detail.
