Morning allSmile
Hope you've all been keeping dry?
I took this shot yesterday morning in my garden, i had to wait for the rain to stop.Sad
So there i was clicking away, i remembered what Ronnie (The master of floral photography) had said "Use a black background!"
So i found my black lens cloth and pegged it to the bush behind the spider.
Not sure what type of spider it is but i think its male.
Now the cloth and peg live in my camera bag.
Thanks for taking part in the Quiz i will upload the answer later.

A rather fantastic macro photograph Iain, full of gorgeous natural colour, superb detail, which enhances the beauty of this rather handsome looking 'Common Spider' so very well indeed. A macro photograph in a new league.

Nicely done with the black bg, but v2 is pretty good anyway.

Green & black & grey no checkered tea towels lol. a friends has lots of Coloured cloth when he goes out and three cloths pegs! does not always work though! I must say for me they both work in different ways in this case, so carry on as you feel Iain is always best, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
