Did it knock at your door for a free photo offer? I ain't going at your studio if I have to sit next to it in the waiting room.

Ah Claude, Welshcakes, have no fear! Crabbie is tiny and utterly inoffensive... unless you are an insect with a predilection for nectar

He doesn't look tiny and inoffensive to me

Aww Nursie compared to the fauna you have Down Under Crabbie is just a little lamb!

Great shot, Jams. I love the colours and the black and white background.

Wow, that was a cool macro! These eyes and all... good job!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks SE, Snoopy. I love my crab spiders. I must admit that the photo is quite heavily cropped

Stan said...

Great photo, Jams. What a lovely creature. I was out in the countryside last weekend, and enjoyed meeting some very big spiders in the bathroom and garden. Hard to get this close to them without a camera, though!

Ah Stan that's the magic of Macro!

Stan said...

My camera has a macro function, but I've not yet taken the time to learn how to use it. Tch!

it's worth checking out Stan. This one was taken with a Digital SLR, dedicated macro lens and a specialist flash though
