No wonder i don't like spiders
Great stuff, nice to see a new angle on a usual suspect!
Very creepy, great shot!
beautiful. Did you take this through glass ?
No, it was a straight shot with a 50mm macro and a two extension tubes totalling 48mm. This, plus a 2.5 F stop gave me incredibly short DoF so that, even though it was a tiny spider, when the tips of the legs were in focus the body was already blurred. What I did was focus on the spider’s body, move back a tad and then shoot about 7 frames in fast succession as I moved slowly closer again. Around frame 5 the spider's body was again in perfect focus but I far preferred this one which was frame 2.
Chuffed you like it
like the angle .....very arty
Almost abstract Matt. Ron.
Hate spiders, love this.
The impact for me in this image of yours is those 3 in focus tips of those legs.
Excellent composition and framing.

Great effect Matt and a superb image
great angle of view, and very creative..
Good imagination here.Effective image.
A very different perspective. Nice selective focus here.
simple but effective
this is so good Matt, very interesting how you took this image
Arachno-art .... you can even make 'orrible little spiders look arty. Can't stand spiders, but I can appreciate the quality of the image. Won't be hanging this one in my lounge though.
very different from you, this is a cracker, well thought out and shot, very effective macro abstracted shot- so typical of yours too. Love it.
Amazing shot Matt, very different and impressive
Minimal but very good, Matt.
great work!... does look like taken on glass as Koen said!... well done!
Highly unusual and very effective.
Superb work here,love the effect works very well nicely done.
Wow Matt..this is quite ghostly! This effect works really well.
I am totally lost....what the mmm... is this ?
This is a very pleasing natural capture and very refreshing to look at.
Nice one Matt.
love your minimalist look to this one,natural and your style of work on nature now,brilliantly done.Perfect.Take care.Ann
It doesn't need to be sharp to be a good one. I like it Matt.
Brilliant and artistic image. Simple but effective.
Probably about the last thing you'd see if you were a small fly. Scary sort of image. Very effective.
Excellent! I couldn't work out if it was the centre of a flower, a person or a spider! I've decided it's the later!
Absolutely amazing shot! Definite click!
great one this matt. I somehow lost my fear of spiders, which used to be huge, over the years. But this nearly brings it back. I'd put an HC on this one but I'm not P. Cheers, hope you're well. Bert
