Scary little critter


This is one of those times I really wish I owned a macro lens. My 24-105 canon lens just can’t get close enough and is not sharp enough for such chores. This little critter was actually on a metal bridge post facing down, but I rotated the shot so he’d look like he’s on a horizontal surface. Someone else in our group noticed him first and when I went to photograph him he got up in a fighting pose for me. The shadow was awesome. I had to seriously crop the shot but what can you do. With a macro, this would have been an amazing capture. Anyway, happy Monday. Have a good week.

    Interesting little bug!
    I bought a macro lens last year for my Canon EOS 20D and I love it. I recently bought a Canon Powershot SX50 and am having fun with the zoom lens, but it is much harder to use it for macro images.

    It’s really great as it is. Now the shadow stands up and it’s kind of mysterious, with a macro lens I guess the spider itself would be more at the focus of the picture and it would have a completely different spirit…
