This looks like one of those dishwasher gel packs (if that's what you call 'em). ;o)

RuthC: Congratulations, The Mick, on winning a top place in this 'I Spied a Spider' challenge, with your speciality: a jumping spider. As always, it's a wonderful capture of this tiny spider, with such an expressive face and the brightest black eyes. The hair: well, I thought these spiky hairstyles went out of fashion a few yeas ago, but perhaps not. :-) Ruth :-)

Thank you kindly, Ruth! Have a great weekend!
Mick

On Arachnidahlia in the I Spied a Spider #2 challenge (8 comments in total)

This is a very cool shot and it gives a great idea of the relative size of the little jumping spider. In an attempt to show more detail, I have a tendency to over-magnify the spider and lose the sense of scale. Yours is well done! Best of luck to you in the challenge.
Regards,
Mick

In reply to:

Lensmate: 5 stars by 5 people.......bit excessive for this shot......sounds like 'buddies' are voting for a win vote here. Fine shot....but not a winner......This guy has won many challenges before and the voting, [as Mr Midwest has put it] is kinda questionable, except for the other reason! Overzealous voting perhaps......friends voting for friends is also unfair!
Guys in photo clubs and the like........all tend to flock together....wink.
Personally, I've never told anyone, nor ever asked for anyone to vote my way, but from many different wins here, one can clearly see at times that this practice takes place!

I'm sure what you're suggesting happens here sometimes and it's a shame, just like the undeserved .5 and 1.0 votes are a shame. There is no doubt about it, cjf2 has won a ton of challenges on dpr, but I don't think this suggests that he is doing something underhanded. I personally have never been solicited to vote for this guy or any other for that matter. It's all subjective, but in my opinion, his photography is overall one of the best regularly displayed here on the challenges. I'm not threatened by that. If anything, it inspires me to get out there and step up my game (so to speak). ;o) It just a hobby for me though. If I win a challenge now and then, all the better. If not (which is most of the time), no biggie. I guess some people take it more seriously. To those people I say, better luck in the next challenge.
I mean no ill will to anyone. These are just my opinions.
Take care,
Mick
