The Monster in the Composter by paul10

The Monster in the Composter

I shot this guy using off camera flash. He lives in our composter. I over rode the ambient light and used the flash gun behind and slightly above the spider. The water drops are actually tap water I flicked at the web. The neighbours must have thought I'd gone mad bending over my tripod and flicking water into a big green bin :)

Excellent capture, love the light on it and all the detail. Still hate spiders though! :-)

A composter :"Oscar the Grouch???"

Wonderful capture! ☺

He is one cool little guy, he definitely looks a little scary I would've been a little hesitant getting super close to him
September 16th, 2016  
Great detail - I love pics with webs on!

@aglennc Haha! I loved Oscar the Grouch :)
@abf277 Thank you :)
@shylaine3304 Thank you. Don't worry Erika, I wasn't that close to him and I made sure he was never moving :)
@lyndamcg Thank you. I love web shots too :)

I would be steering clear of the composer! ....or getting someone to evict him lol. Nice capture though & the water drops really add to the image

Isn't he magnificent. I don't mind spiders until I walk through a web at night. That is really scary and some of the spiders here are huge.

Absolutely excellent shot! So well focused with great detail. Love your PoV!
Well worth the effort you took.
A FAV!

Haha the things we do for art! Nice.

This is just beautiful. Great focus. Good to know how you got this shot too - I do not understand enough about flash to use it. Fav
September 16th, 2016  
Look at the size of that, awesome
September 17th, 2016  
Wow. This is a fantastic shot!!
