Hi Neal: What a creature to find in ones darkroom !! To me this large spider as you have presented it is a good scientific study of this insect, and we have no spiders like this in Northwest WA. State. As usual your focus stacking process is done to perfection as the subject has perfect sharpness front to back.   Posted: 02/23/2021 23:25:40
