Another great close-up Jack! I love the detail captured in the cilia of the spider's legs. His current position makes one want to call him a Daddy Long Legs. ;-)

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Really ? I thought the same but from other side shooted . And I wanted to say how previous one is better, much better, because of the pattern on its back :)) Stomach side is not so attractive :))

10 Sep 2009 8:05pm

@MARIANA: I think that you see a woman's belly differently than I do :)) Actually, it's her whole naked front side!!
