an exceptional photograph, but i would have had a difficult time processing it : - )
Lisl: I find them fascinating, sherri
> Oh GOD... so hard for me to look at spiders. (At a quick peek I can appreciate the design.)
Lisl: Thanks for the quick peek, Jacquelyn!
Jolies couleurs pour cette araignée mais je ne suis pas fan de ces petites bêtes.
Lisl: The fascinate me, Martine, but I don't like them much either!
Bravo pour cette très belle ne suis pas fan de cette bebete ..
Lisl: Merci bien, Claudine. I understand your feelings

Often overlooked, these are pretty looking spiders - in as much as any arachnid can ever be deemed attractive..
Lisl: I am always pleased when this time of year comes round and these are in the hedgerows, gradually getting fatter!
Beautiful capture. I like spiders
Lisl: Thank you, Marie. Not many people do!
Uh oh. I hope it's not pooping like the spiders outside our front door, Lisl. (Guess you can tell what's on my mind lately. HA!)
Lisl: Yes indeed

A gripping find, Lisl.
Lisl: I'm pleased she was gripping her web, Richard

A cracking image. I have something similar (although I have to say I've not got that close to it) across the middle of the garden. The web goes frrm the first floor window ledge across to the shed, a distance of around 12ft.
Lisl: Wow - that is some length. Yesterday I removed a spider like this from across a greenhouse door twice, and in no time she was back in position again, ready to re-spin

I remember you snapping this in Brisl Lisl.
Lisl: Ah! This actually is another one with my old camera that I couldn't manage. I wish now I had kept it!
A magnificent specimen. I like spiders outside but the black things that lurk in the bathroom are less appealing
Lisl: I agree, Bill - they are quite different

I am constantly surprised by the variety of arachnids, their colouring and shape.
Lisl: I have a new book on spiders - really good
Close ups of spiders don't come any better than this.
Lisl: Thank you very much indeed, Brian
I am deleting my upcoming spider shot now. Excellent shot.
Lisl: Oh, please don't

Looking at your f/3.8 and yet the spider seems to be in focus most of the way, I can think it is a small specimen. Excellent with that dark background.
Lisl: Body less than 20mm

That is a beauty, Lisl. Soon we will see his whole family again...
Lisl: They are everywhere in the hedgerows this Autumn, Astrid

You have captured the find details beautifully.
Lisl: Thank you, Cherie
Excellent capture of this fellow, Lisl. The black background really highlights those amazing coloured markings.
Lisl: Thank you, Beverly - it takes a photo to bring out the colour and markings, as I wouldn't wish to get too close!
Wow! What a fantastic image! I love this spider!
Lisl: Thank you so much, Elizabeth. They are all in the hedgerows now, fattening up!
