We do this at the other forum once and a while, start a macro thread for one type of subject.

The spiders are starting to get big in the garden and the webs are every where.

Its a good way to get the lurkers to post also.

I will start things off with some of my favorites.

Martin:

These are simply AWESOME :!: 8) :mrgreen: That little yellow one is different looking, that's for sure. Now is the time around here when the big "Garden Spiders" as I call them, are out making their nests.

I'll see if I can find some spider shots to post. Again, excellent work as always.

For me the jumping spider is the best. Did you use the reversed lens technique for this?

Did you know that this species of crab spider can change colour?

Hi Bob, the jumper was with the Tamron 90 and 2x teleconverter.

No I didn't know that the Goldenrod's could change color, I have seen them in various shades of yellow and the small brown males, what colors can they change too?

Thanks

Hi Kramp,

Absolutely wonderful images and perfect technique. Love the composition
and overall sharpness of the Tamron 90 + Tc.

Did you use any flash for these images ?

Again, thank you for sharing these.

Regards,

Roberto.

Hi Roberto, yes I used flash, a had dual flash rig I was using at the time with the 90, the flashes came in from each side.

Thanks

I wonder what makes people like me who are deathly afraid of spiders come and look at a thread like this!!! Ick! But I must say that there are some awesome shots of spiders so far! Like Gordon said, I think I'll have nightmares tonight.
