Yikes, the scale of this capture really makes the spider look scary big. Well captured and nice presentation.

That's what I was going to say!! Wink

Carol, I envy you a lot of your insects - but not this one! This one you can keep all to yourself! Well photographed mind, lots of gruesome details!

Mornin' Carol - a bit squeamish for me, after last night's Chinese take-awayTongue

V3 gives the best overall view IMHO

There is a fresh South-Westerly blowing in these parts, but never the less, it is off to the woods in 45 minutes or soGrin

A terrific macro. The lighting level adds to the sinister quality. 2 and 3 look particularly threatening. Well done.

An awesome set of macros Carol, congratulations on the User Award. I'm sure Illiboy is a Maratsuikka multi, or if he isn't he's his brother, the styles and manerisms of the two are uncannily similarWink

It's probably more like her catch after mating. Female spiders are not very nice to their partners after mating. Lovely shot though.
