Looks like the biggest spiders have the smallest eyes and vice versa.
Nice shot.

Aren't they?? I get so excited when I see one in the yard now!

Muscleflex, I think the watermark is confusing people. Renee Thomas was my designer name for my jewelry line. The reason I used that name is because a there is a Racquel who is a porn star (not me) and I would not be able to compete in search engines and number 2 very few people spell my name correctly which would also kill me in search results. When I got bit by the photography bug I stopped creating jewelry but could not get my name changed.

I recently started watermarking my images because a picture (non-macro) was stolen and published in a scam christian charity "newspaper". So to protect myself and my reputation I am watermarking all images.

PS. The only reason Martin spells my name correctly is because he is French Canadian. The "c" is what confuses people which is the French not Spanish spelling.
