It's a great shot, but I sure hope I never come face to face with one of those!

Hello all,
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. This was photographed alive on my front door. It was shot at 3 times the life size. Have a good day!

So-o-o...Did you invite IT in? Awesome capture, Amila!! The eyes look like onyx bezel set in 18K gold!

oldcrow61 said...

fishing guy said...

Amila: What a cool shot of the spider,your macro work is spendid.

Sara Chapman said...

Whatever it is, it's fearsome! What a macro. And thanks for visiting my pink azaleas recently.

Gallicissa said...

Thank you Kim, OC, Tom and Sara for your lovely comments! Kim I invited it in but it preferred to guard the door! I was okay with it as the colour of the door provided a beautiful background to the shot.

Critters are amazing when they are in their world. When they come into our world (which technically was their's to begin with) I start to get freaked out. I quickly usher them back from whence they came and hope they are happier out there than keeping me company inside. *shudder*

What a shot!!Really liked your blog.

Chriss said...

Very cool shot!

Another great macro shot.....

So when is the 100-400 arriving?

Gallicissa said...

Thank you all for your encouraging comments! Good to hear from you all. Stu, I am waiting until I receive my camera body back from the local Canon repair centre. The news is it needs to be sent to Singapore to remove sensor dust! Yes, the local guys here were unable to do it. They appear in the images when I shoot with my 65mm MPE. I will get that lens when I have my 40D back.

Vickie said...

Amila, sometimes I open your blog and just have to laugh. Your macro images are awesome...this one a fun surprise.

Matt Latham said...

Awesome image - the detail and those eyes are incredible

Gallicissa said...

Thanks a lot, Vickie and Matt!
Good to hear from you two.

Aluajala said...

Wow!
I'm sure I used to have a book with a picture of this guy when I was a kid. I tried to search it recently in my parents home but to no result. Don't even remember the title but only one picture of this spider. I was impressed and loved it from the very first sight.
Awesome creature and a great shot!

Gallicissa said...

Hi Aluajala,
Thanks!

I am happy to hear that you this guy! I hope you could find that book. Try again!

Apologies for my delayed response.
