My tegenaria atrica after christmas dinner
Posted By: Steiner1776, 12-25-2016, 10:58 AM

I found this little fellow around 6 weeks ago at my work. Without me rescuing her she would have most likely died. Last week I bought her a proper terrarium unfortunately its quite difficult to photograph her cause her species is one of the fastest on the planet so taking her out is out of the question. So I had no option as to take the shot through the plastic glas and of course with spider webs in front of it as well. Yet the detail is quite astonishing. The picture was taken with a Pentax K3-II, Pentax 100mm 2.8 Macro WR, ISO 100, F13, 20 seconds. She has quite a large abdomen due to fact that I took it right after she had a wonderful christmas dinner. A worm 3/4 of her size.
