This is a fantastic picture not only is it perfect but it also demonstrates the uncanny ability of this animals abilities to blend itself into it's natural surroundings. Paul :)

Home in the warm at last, it's getting quite chilly over here now. It's going to be a very cold winter.
Great shot, as always PERFECTION from the sweet one;).
Thanks for posting. Have a great night,
Monika, trying to balance the Universe out between butterflies and spiders :).
An unusual and wonderful creature, this arachnid, you surprised well the mimetism phenomenon, it almost looks like he could perfectly fit in place for the part of the twig that has no bark.
The flash bounce (on upper part) is a malfactor that spoiled the quality a little, also flash is to be blamed for the large portioned shadow on the right and the soft noise.
I think Santa Claus should bring a macro ring flash to bad girls this year, hmm ?! ... ;P

Hello Monika, a lovely shot of this spider. I like the composition and pose. The picture certainly shows off how good its disguise is.
I got one of these eating another spider but you might not want to think about it.
