The legs fit about a two and a half inch circle, found her on a board I was carrying from the shed, glad I didn't squish her against my neck!

Very tiny eyes on these spiders so they don't show up well.

I must say that is a very good shot with good perspective and one that I certainly could not take for I would have stepped on the thing long before I grabbed my camera. Sorry, I just hate spiders (but your pic is excellent). :)

Excellent shot Martin. Nice to have the extra working distance of the 200 macro on this one for sure. 8)

ICKKKKKK!!!!!! I cannot stand spiders. I've got the creepy crawlies just from looking at this! That's a fine shot you took there Martin. Although I expect no less from you!

Hi Keith, I used two flashes with mini softboxes, the blue background is water color paper painted with the wifes water color paints, its a nice matte surface I use a bigger one for the humming birds, its easy to change and add to I just slop some more paint on and it can even be rinsed off.

The base is a slate tile I picked up at Home Depot, it makes a nice natural looking platform to place things on.

Martin,

That is one big spider. Great shot! Love the perspective and depth of field. How did you get it to stay still long enough to get the shot???
