Great shot. I would rather see a spider going away than coming towards me.

Not the worst that I have seen, but it's a butt shot. By the way, spiders are arachnids, not insects. If I were trying to get a good shot of this spider, however, I would get in front of it rather than "behind" it. The man-made and unnatural roof background detracts from the subject.

I think 'I Like Big Butts' would be a better title. This might be a more interesting photo if the spider wasn't centered. The contrasts could be enhanced as well.

Nice! One trick you might have tried... it might have been cool to flip this upside-down to make it look as though the spider is walking a tight rope.

Good detail. I'd prefer to see the front of the spider. Actually that's why I didn't submit my spider pic.
You did a good job though. 7

the misty quality of this with the upside-down spider is lovely...it would nice to isolate it even more, the railing is a bit distracting

Shame we can't see its face (I have many shots of spiders' backsides, and very few of ther faces - strange that). The spider is nicely on focus with the background nicely blurred. DOD looks good too.

It sure doesn't look very itty bitty!! I love your choice to photograph him from behind (or maybe you had no choice?) And I also love the way his little legs are clinging to his web. A wonderful, creative shot!!! :)

Being a scientist, let me excercise being a topic police this time. It isn't an insect. Nice capture though.
