More of the Golden Spider Queen

A few extra shots, one clearer on the cephalothorax and another that shows more clearly her shrunken abdomen. The last one you have to look closely, but you can see on of those giant grasshoppers wathching the spider and her prey. Seems like a case of morbid fascination.

Hi Rachel. I recently started macro photographing stuff from my back yard (insects-plants) and I found your blog interesting.

Hey Renaldo! Thanks for the comment. You know, you still have time to back out of the macro-photography gig. It's utterly addictive and you will find that most people refer to you and your work as "interesting" -- and then slowly back away. ;)
