Spiderling Mosh Pit

By SteveMackay  
A pic of a brood of miniature Spiderling (Amaurobius similis), i've never seen so many Spiders in one place!, the Mother was nearby to protect them, but she was a bit photo shy (and enormous in comparison to her offspring, which are approx? 2mm from eyes to end of abdomen)
These baby Spiders would not stay still for long, but I managed to get this 6 shot focus stack, it's a mix of Natural and artificial lighting.
Thanks for looking and thanks for comments and votes on my previous pic, it's much appreciated!Smile

Great shot capturing the transparency of the spiderlings legs and the abdominal hairs. Paul

Superbly detailed macro work, Steve, with a stunning rang of detail, textures and tones. Beautifully lit, though I must admit, although I like spiders, these look so wriggly and squirmy that they almost make me itch!
