Post your spider pictures....

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by kramp, Aug 13, 2005.

  1. 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.

    Tamron 90 1/500 f40

    Tamron 90 1/500 f45

    Tamron 90 1/500 f18 2x tc
    Tamron 90 1/500 f40 2x tc
    Tamron 90 1/500 f25

    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.
  3. 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?

    Wrong thread
  11. 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?

    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.


  14. 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.

  15. Yikes I may not go to sleep tonight. Scary all.
  16. Thanks for joining in, Mike, Tim and Biggstr6.

    Thanks for the comments but I want to see more spiders!

    Quit putting yourself down Neil. This is a very good shot. 8)

    How big was this guy?
  20. 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.
