Was taking some other small insect today, when I chance upon a nearby spider web. Did not see any spider there though, but a fly was flying around and got caught in the web. Immediately, this Kidney Garden Spider dashed out from nowhere and grabbed the fly and wrap it out. I later found it under the leaf.

Took some shots of it, and compile them in one image.

Taken with FZ10+Nikon 6T+Sigma CU, ISO 50, F8, speed from 1/60-1/200
Ext bounce flash.
Extreme close up with reverse 50mm minolta lens.



Appreciate any comments.

Here are some larger version of those on top.





For the rest, it can be found here

BTW, what does the abdomen of the spider looks like?

Great shots as always, Tchuanye.
You've got a recognizable style.

Also that yellowish cast of FZ10 (and 20) which can be irritating in other kinds of shots, contributes to give a particular feeling to FZ shots, for the green assumes that particular emerald toneproper of FZ10-20 macros.

Thanks tcook, Narmer and Hiroshi!

Narmer, how do you remove the yellow cast? I applied some blue shift in the colour balance, but it still looks yellowish....
