Nice color saturation. #1 and 4 look to be the sharpest to my eyes.

I love #1, it reminds me of one of those kids hi-tec morphing toys

I never thought I'd ever call I spider cute, but that furry little critter is kinda compelling.

I agree with Hiroshi it looks like someone built the spider. I have never seen one like it. #1 is the best.

Great shots! Starting to work with macros myself, I appreciate how touchy it sometimes is to get good ones - way to go

Thanks everyone :-D . You'ed think that alot of light would give better results but using what seemed to be the best settings showed up as a white hot spot no flash was used . So i had to stop out a bunch of light to get alot of detail .
