Well done Stefan, you might find that you never take your close up lens off the camera!
LTZ, another set of great closeups. I continue to be amazed at how hairy bees are.

LTZ470,

absolutely stunning pictures and very impressive, what could be done with the FZ40. I hope, I can reach your virtuosity with this camera.

Cheers,

Stefan

Bernice,

very impressive set of pix. I am just a newbie in photography and at the moment we have still winter in Germany (sleet today), but in future I will also post in the close-ups forum.

Cheers,

Stefan

Happy to add Signature spider, known for marking its web with a 'X' pattern.

What it looks like:


A close up - you can see him smiling!


The beautiful pattern of his web:

Great detail Raghu.

We have a similar spider, known as the St Andrew's Cross Spider [Argiope keyserlingi] It's called that because of the similarity to the cross of St Andrew on the Union Jack - it's probably the same species as your signature spider.

For an image go to http://australianmuseum.net.au/image...e-keyserlingi/

For a fact sheet go to http://australianmuseum.net.au/St-Andrews-Cross-Spider/

Cheers

Bernice

Yes, Bernice, I think the signature spider and St.Andrew's Cross spider are the same.

Here is the common 'jumping spider' as we call it. I can easily spot at least 10 of them roaming in and around my house any time. With its large, head-light eyes, it makes a beautiful subject for photography.

Raghu,

wonderful shot of this little spider.
I tried yesterday to make some shots of a very small (1 or 2 mm) jumping spider, but I couldn't get a shot in front if it with its impressive eyes. It was to nervous ;-)

I hope we will see a lot of different spiders all over the world.

Cheers,

Stefan
