Today was a first. I have never taken a macro lens out into the forest. Any of the insects I have done, have generally been done with a telephoto or telephoto zoom. When I have tried macro in the past (I have a 60M Canon macro) I just did not have the patience or understanding of DOF etc. But with the last year of experience and experiments it was time to try again. (I confess, Clusterpod’s insect images certainly helped motivate me. ;-)
So here are some shots from my maiden voyage into the land of spiders. How can something that makes me so crazy when it is crawling in my house, provide such endless entertainment in front of a camera!
