Crikey, what a strange spider, looks like a mushroom on his back.
Great shot, love the way you have the fly in there as well. Good capture of the web and that frightening spider.
Excellent. Annette

Nice macro. The dof is great and the details seem really deep and sharp. Nice lighting, too. I like how your frame seems to be laid under the webbing. Nice work.
