Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken around the Roman ruins of Acinipo in Malaga (Spain) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acinipo It was a chance meeting. I was visiting the ancient city and taking photos of the remains of their architecture when I found this wolf spider near her hole in the ground where the male was hiding. I changed the lens 14-45mm by 18-180mm and I came closer her trying not to scare the spider. It seems that she felt comfortable with the photo session because she was immobile for a long time, allowing me to approach much more and change perspectives.
