Very very nice!
But "Hand held stack of 20 shots
Magnification 4:1"
How it that possible with a 1/200 speed?
Even with a tripod I think it's very difficult to achieve, so hand held ...

Thanks, the flash helps a lot to freeze the scene. I was laying in the grass for this shot so very stable, then i aim for the legs of the spider and while i move slowly toward the spider i shoot in burst mode. Thanks to the stabilized sensor and the 10 frames/s of my camera! This technic is a little bit tricky but it works great!!

I don't think I have ever seen this type arachnid. However, I really appreciate this shot . The colors are awesome and the focus is just crazy good. Excellent!
