    Your opinion? Wolf spider

    I myself am afraid of spiders. Still, I think it's cool to take macro photos of them as long as they are smaller than 10mm. Olympus E-M1MarkIII Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm macro 1/125 F/4 iso 100 Stack of fifteen photos by hand. Daylight

    Photography Wildlife Photography Competition - deadline 31st August
