I was taking my gear out to the truck as usual this morning and saw this guy. He had built his web across our sidewalk. It was very hard to get a decent focus lock because the web was about 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide, and the slightest breeze (including my body movement) caused him to move far more than the DOF with this lens set-up. For reference, the spider's body is about 1/4 inches long. I also used the 1.7 TC. In any case, here are some shots. Thanks for looking.
