The Spider in this picture is called Poecilotheria regalis. It is a species of arboreal tarantulas from the Western and Eastern Ghats, India. I had previsualized this picture long back but the main challenge is to find a tarantula in a perfect place and approach closer to take a wide angle picture. After spotting this particular individual I had to set wireless speedlite behind the tree barksuch that it wil backlit the spider. It took me 4 years for this picture the way I had previsualized.
