Fridie Spidie: Glass

Viciria praemandibularis spiderlings, NTUsafti, Singapore

From the photo’s description: “This picture was taken one day after the first. I pushed my reverse 50mm lens to the limit by using over 12.5mm extension tube. The contrast was enhanced during post-processing. The body length of the spiderlings is approximately 1mm. The rudiments of the eyes are clearly seen, as well as the book lungs at the front of the adomen of the one hanging upside down. Under the lens the spiderlings could be seen moving once a few seconds. But they all stay within the confine underneath the silk mesh laid down by the mother spider.”
