With this image I tried to capture the feelings of uncertainty in darkness and that spiders are "evil".

I used a tripod, directional flash and a magnification of 2.2:1 to get this shot.

Interesting picture!
I like the contrast between dark and light, and I especially like the hairs on the legs.

Thanks for the nice comments . The more I look at this one, the more I like it. It feels like a painting how there is just enough detail given, but the rest is left up to the imagination.

Nice lighting effect on the critter.
Adds to the drama of the shot.
Well done.
