Wow...AWESOME CAPTURES, Carol GrinGrin

Scary but beautiful spider and it's got a very interesting bum! Especially from the view in V2. Reminds me of a sand dollar.

V1 is an excellent close-up but I really like that view in V2. Shows off the spider so well. Gorgeous light in both, though!

Hope he put on some suntan lotion. I like both versions for different reasons. V1 for the face and for the legs reaching to the frame edges. V2 for the back patterns.
