My son was digging in the sand on the beach and this crawled over his hand. An awesome find. They are so well camaflouged in the sand, you can't see them 'til they move.

beautiful use of DOF. the way the spider blends into the sand is breathtaking.

This image has awesome image quality so for that alone I gave a 7. Love the DOF. Not as keen on the angle it´s shot from though, would have preferred this better I think if it were shot more at the same level the spider is at rather than from above like this.

Good DOF, really pops.

I think this would have been better if the DOF was expanded a bit.
