It's a female spider, that's why she's carrying eggs. :meow:

Cool photograph. I particularly enjoy the perspective and that the photo is cut horizontally by the colors green and grey with the subject in focus in the middle. In other words, I like the composition and choice of perspective for the shot.

If it was bigger, that's why I don't like spiders because they're so small and they could be anywhere, for example, snakes have poison but at least you know when one is nearby.

I have a horrible fear of spiders.
But for some reason, i can study them, look at pictures and genuinly think they are quite interesting.
I just cant have them ANYWHERE NEAR ME IN REAL LIFE.

Great shot.
Beautiful.
And kudos on getting that close.

Nice shot. I'm pretty sure she's holding the sac in her fangs though. Spinnerets are right at the back of the abdomen.

Ah no problem. It is an awesome shot. How did you manage to get her to stay still for long enough?

she was walking on a tree stump, so I placed my hand in front of her and she froze for a couple of seconds, I have a couple more of her before she took off, I will post them later on..
