fang of a spider

Post by PietFrancke » Tue Jul 04, 2017 2:28 pm

my macro lens lets me see more than my reading glasses! Exuvia are easily found in old sheds.

That is both hideous and perfectly designed. And also very well taken. You find the most fascinatingly beautiful scary critters. Nice separation from the background and excellent use of light.

Piet,
Was this actually among the exuviae?
What kind of spider? Size?
is this a stacked image?
Incredibly intricate detail.
It's awesome (and that just may be my first use of that horridly over-used word!)

thank you Minnie and Dave - yes, stacked. a wolf spider I think, including legs around an inch in diameter (not stretched out). The fangs themselves are part of the cap that they blow off and of course substantially smaller - we are probably looking at around 1/16 or less of an inch here.

Piet, you need to write some scary movie screenplays! One of the tarantulas I owned shed its exoskeleton while I had it. A wondrous sight to view as it lay on its back and the belly area opened first. Awesome photo! I disagree with Dave that "awesome" is over-used; it covers so much ground, I'd be lost without it :)

Creepily stunning Piet !!! The details are incredible. Never ever gave thought that a spider would need a shave.
