Hey Christopher,
You didn't post your f-stop and SS....but judging the DOF, I wish you had just a bit more. I don't think I needed the legs tack......but a bit more on the face. I happen to like the high key look of the BG here......although it does make the web a bit harder to distinguish.....I can make a few out to give it some depth. If you can sharpen the spider face a bit more.....this one will shine!

Hi Christopher. Yup, please remember to post your ss and f/stop as that will help us make more-informed comments. I think Roman nailed the critique. The fly looks great and if you can squeeze a little more sharpness out of the spider's head, that will put this one over the top. :S3:

This is a very cool behavior image, Christopher. Love the detail and interaction. Roman & Steve make good suggestions, but nicely done.
