I chose to view from a distance. So lifelike and scary shots. Great job!

Wow, what a scary looking thing...

Is it laying eggs or hunting? Fantastic macro BTW.

Wow! I would not want to get close to one of them!

However, the colors on them are beautiful; and you did an awesome job capturing them!
