I was going to say some type of Orchid spider but I'm not sure. Although it does also look like a Nephila sp.

hey there,

thanks for that. the few online collections do have the same leg banding..
but as far as i can see, im not to sure on the thorax elongation...
and it probably doesn't help that my photo is sideon for identification..

but thanks again =)

I love the angle, and the title fits very nicely with that.

I would squish it. D:

nice shot... i love the DoF game there... and the only thing that I'd suggest is to remove the light at the right... to get more attention to the spider... I find that a little distracting... otherwise is a great shot

ENiGMA926 Featured By Owner May 23, 2007

mm. yea, removing the light sounds like a good idea.
i just didn't want to manipulate it all too much..
but i'll see what i can do - cheers!
