Golden Orb

A macro shot of a female Golden Orb Spider
a species introduced from the continent in the
nineteen thirties. This shot was taken using
extension tubes and a ring flash. It was quite
windy and the lens was only about an inch from the spider.

Its a great close up but IMHO a little too tight on the crop. More of the spider would have been better.

This is gorgeous, such beautiful details. I can see what Paul means, and yes that would be another shot, but I do like the really close crop.
