Default Webshots - Raynox 250

This signature spider's web was too tempting, so I decided to play by spraying some water. See the results!

The original web (and the spider - abdomen view):



As I started to spray water, the spider quickly moved out of the centre, giving me these two views:





Moments later, the spider stretched his toe and with his red toe on the background, the drop appeared red!



Amazing, isn't it? The spider is safe, and with the heat building in Chennai, hopefully by tomorrow morning all the water would have dried.
Would appreciate your comments.

Raghu Excellent web shots. I always enjoy the photos that you post. Hard to pick a favorite but I like #1 followed by #4.

really great and sharp shots!

the #4 has an almost 3D perspective.

Good job

The Raynox macro lenses are, IMO, indispensable in any photog gadget bag. Several of us here have both the DCR-250 and DCR-150. They are worth every penny.

Great images... as usual!

Raghu,

very good job, excellent pix!
My favorite is the last picture, where the spiders foot is touching the net in a water drop.
How large is the spider and his net?

Cheers,

Stefan

Great shots, Raghu. I LOVE the last one. Reminds me of Einstein's curved space theory....
