Beautifully marked spider that one. Like the classic defence posture in the first shot. no5 looks as though its shielding its eyes from the flash.....impressive fangs too.

That's one crazy looking little spider. I really like shots #4 and #6, especially the pose in shot #6.

Impresive macros Tan, Number 3, 5, and 8 are my favorites.

My God! He certainly looks ferocious. Better be careful, Tan. Some spiders are venomous too.

I know, but I think those here are harmless......I hope.

Looking at all these, I wonder if spiders can think, and if so, what he was thinking of this monster human sticking things in his face. He does look fierce with those fangs.
