Hi Neal: You seem to have an endless supply of these really fascinating insect pictures, they are kind of your trademark as they are so unique in the way you approach these from a photography standpoint. This version is nicely composed, with spot on exposure, super sharpness, and then as always your choice of border color is well chosen to blend in with the subject. The jet black background supports the subject well.   Posted: 06/06/2021 23:59:59

Hi Neal,
Perfect! The golden colored spider pops against the black background. I can see his eyes looking at me. Every hair and fiber on his tiny body is tack sharp. As always, well done.   Posted: 06/10/2021 09:17:19

DON'T EVER CALL THE "ORKIN MAN"

I JUST LOVE SEEING ALL YOUR LITTLE BUGS, YOU HAVE A GREAT WAY OF RENDERING THEM.

EVERY LITTLE HAIR SHOWS UP SHARP AS A TACK.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SOME ON SOMETHING OTHER THAN A SOLID BACKGROUND, MAY BE SOMETHING NATURAL LIKE A LEAF OR FLOWER,OR SOMEHING ELSE.   Posted: 06/13/2021 14:45:21
