There were millions of these spiders around. They appear in fall and are quite big. Although not a particular spider fan, I like these pretty colorful ones. I chose this one because the background looked so good behind.
Minimal post processing.

6 - Like this, nice colors, good composition. Just seems to have little texture/definition/depth - which could be a result of 'neat image', but apologies in advance if wrong.

With advanced editing, I'd consider cloning the little 'loopy' web in the left out and the part in the top right...still, awesome color and focus...9

I hate spiders but I have to say this a very nice shot. Great details on this unusual spider and the background colours complement your subject well.

I like the colors of the background; they really compliment the red on the spider's abdomen. I might have cloned out a few of the random wisps of web on the upper and lower left.

Excellent colors. The focus is just a bit soft...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The color and sharpness are absolutely amazing in this photo, but it's the composition that puts this over the top. Great job!

Not a great fan of spiders myself - you wouldn't get me this close. Good, detailed, image.
