Black Widow by mygale, auf Flickr

I received this black widow (0.1 Latrodectus mactans) a couple months ago, she came here with a car import from the US and I adopted her. I had this exact image in mind for a couple days but getting it wasn’t that easy.

Sony Alpha 7RII
Tamron 90mm Macro - ~0,9:1x, ƒ8
Cognisys Stackshot - 45x580µm
2x Godox AD200 - 1/64
7168*4778px
