I think this should be 1080x1080, if not my apologies- posting from mobile. Long story short, found this gorgeous Dolomedes tenebrosus in our house. Relocated to the heated garage so it can overwinter :)

5D IV, MP-E 65mm, MT-24EX

1/200, ISO200, f/11, flash heads at 1/4 each.

Wow, I am speechless... Great capture!
I put the photo on full screen then called my wife to come in the room :) Her reaction was priceless! I know, how infantile ...

I am tempted to print the picture and put it on the door of my workshop..... just the thought that it might be in there would protect my tools :)

Very nice shot, Drainpipe!
Thanks Click! Much appreciated.

Handsome devil!
I thought so too. The coloration and pattern on these is really nice. Perfect camo in grass.

What a great shot!
Thanks Don!

Ha! These guys do illicit a reaction much of the time :)

I love having these guys around. They’re very efficient at what they do, and will keep other pests at bay.

Nice. But looking so scary. I got scared.
Thank you! If it makes any difference they’re pretty docile. I was able to hand hold this one for posing. It’s actually sitting on my phone screen!
