I hate spiders but these are good shots. The DOF is nice how it just slices through the image of the spider.

I just got cold chills looking at this but you did a great job on this and everything else you do!

As much as hate spiders these are really good. I like the spot light and the gels. Great job!

Spiders are pretty cool subjects to begin with, so yay. I like the control over dof you had...really makes these pictures interesting. Nice use of color as well.
