Lovely portrait

Thomas Powell
Do You Ever Feel like someone is watching you? Great clarity in the eyes. In this case, your name in "dead" space on top, allowing him to naturally leave your frame might be visually more pleasing ... but, your choice keeps the eyes in one area ... I'm torn. Beautiful portrait.

Marc Aubry
Wonderfull shoot, also funny.

Karl Schuler
Terribly sharp and impressive monster face but with the given title one would expect to see more of the legs. I suggest to change the title. Otherwise it is an outstanding photo. Karl

Stefano Cariolato
An incredible macro. Thanks God they are not huge. Compliments.

Rob Valine
Outstanding ! Wow ! Outstanding Macro shot ! Best detail I've ever seen on a spider. I'm seeing pupils in this things eyes. I didn't know spiders had pupils. I guess if you're another small insect, this is the last thing you want to see close up. Nice job !

Fantastic!! Did you glue his rear down? How did you get him to pose? Don't like spiders, but I love this photo! 7/7... Mike

Very impressive image. Good to see that even with the setup (gosh that must have been hard to handhold) you could pull something like this off. Very nice. "I didn't know spiders had pupils." They don't. Nice touch. Or is it "nice catch". Was the pigmentation natural? Either way, looks great. ;)

You have gotta be kidding me. This gotta be the best macro of a spider I've ever seen. All thumbs up.

Your lens combination must have been a foot long. I'm surprised you had enough light. This is outstanding!
