Great reflection, detail is outstanding. This guy is a little scary though. I almost sprayed my monitor with a can of Raid.

Amazing close-up!!! Spiders completely creep me out, but this is an incredible shot!

Poor misunderstood spider. I remember gardening one day when one ran up my arm under my shirt sleeve, across my shoulders & down & out the other sleeve....I've seen people almost faint when I tell them. I can't say I enjoyed it, but chilled out until it was over.

Great Shot. I am not a big fan of spiders so I'll leave this
stuff up to you. Nice Work.

Excellent (actually, amazing) detail on this macro, John.... >...I would not want to meet this critter in my travels. Well captured

Eeeek! It's scarier than Shelob! This thing has three eyes? And it was alive, walking around in your house?? Eek.

"nice" picture ! It's incredible and you did this picture with a focal length of 50.5 mm !?! You're very courageous !

Hi John

Great shot you have got there. Love the reflection. The spidey looks a bit manacing. Reminds me of Shelob from The Lord of The Ring. Keep it up

So do you get them to pose on mirrors? I don't care much for spiders and I know you say this one keeps the place tidy eating flies and stuff. I still want to keep my distance.--Rene
