I like this combination occasionally when I want to be able to get closer than 1:1. The small buds are about 1/4 inch. This was handheld at 1/250, f8, ISO 100.

Nice! I'm amazed that you can be steady enough to keep the desired area in focus when hand holding!

Nice shot and great magnification. Not actually a spider though...it's a harvestman arachnid.

Nice catch, Ted...! :cool:

Is that the same as a Daddy-Long-legs...?

Edit:

Never mind, I looked it up...

It is called Daddy-Long-legs by some (that's what we called them as kids) along with two other
species... Both of those other species actually are in the spider family but not this fellow...
