    Fantastic shot! Is it stacked?

    I do not see the food either? :confused:

    Thank you

    No, no stacking here. I've never done that before. Im going to have to try it soon though!

    This spider has been nesting near my house under a light post for a while now. It keeps getting bigger and bigger. It could probably eat a small bird in a few months :biggrin:

    The food (or at least I think its food :confused:) is that black blob near its mandibles....probably the gelatinous remains of another insect

    Thanks for sharing this great shot! I wish my macros could come out like this.

    Its under a lamp post. I also shined it with my cellphone from a distance...kind of getting two tones of light as you can noticed. Not ideal, but I had to make it work :/

    Great shot, Sam!

    I love the clarity around his small eyes... somehow makes him look bigger than real life (I hope), like he could eat a Volkswagen.

    nice shot ... and looks really scary! :)

    would have loved the front legs to be in sharp as well, though. other than that nitpick, it looks great.

    I really hope it does not jump right out at you Bob! You'd most likely be terrified! It looks like a mean little spider(?) :wink:

    Excellent image. I like that lens I have it in a Konica mount.

    Good job with the lighting. I wonder what its food was. Here's one of mine: [​IMG]"365" height="500" alt="organic pest control"></a>[/IMG]
