Meet Mr Creeps, my pet garden spider Smile If you are an arachnophobe DO NOT LOOK AT V2

I've posted V2 as a variation as I don't wanna frighten folk. Wifey reckoned I should have posted it as V1, but she can be evil like that Grin

Same spider as yesterday's image, V1 is 46 image stack at x1.5 magnification, with V2 being a 35 image stack X3.5 magnification. Both images full frame with no crop. The fangs on V2 are the genuine colour, with just a very little touch of saturation. Both images took about 3-4 hours to clean up to this stage.

Thanks to everyone for their kind comment/votes and very generous awards, hope you enjoy these couple of images just as much.....Only a few more to come I promise Grin

Quite extraordinary stuff, Ade: the details you are able to capture are a wonder to us all (well they are to me anyway).
Quite SUPERB in every way.

I love v2 ( v1 is good, too) but the hairy detail is great.
Spiders eat flies... so I do like them.

Two unbelievably good macros Ade, the detail in v2 is astounding. What on earth is that win and loss stuff all about, is that the number of people on here that have failed the spider challenge and have been scared off?Tongue
