what a wonderful picture. I'm no fan of spiders but this is great. Can't have been an easy picture to achieve.

Ew, Ew, Ew, Ew. Sorry. it's not the shot (composiion, color, contrast, sharpness or anything like that) it's just that I really dislike spiders.

Amazing shot. Being at the right place at the right time AND knowledgable in looking for something different like this. Great that they even used the block of wood as their arena rather than just an area of dirt. Great focus too. It's so hard to get that (least for me)
