Hi folks, heres a shot of a "Stretch spider" (Tetragantha extensa), I found thousands of them a while back (when the weather was better) at a local nature reserve, but they all mostly gone now. I would have preferred to get everything in focus with a stack, but the breeze stopped that idea LOL. Thanks for looking, C&C most appreciated, cheers!
A super shot of this spider – the lighting and composition are working well giving the image nice eye appeal. Regarding the DOF aspects – very difficult without stacking to achieve complete back to front sharpness with any spider in this sort of pose, but you nailed it imo for a single shot
Stacking spiders on their webs has driven me daft (err...even more daft I should say) so I don't even try anymore. This works great for a single shot, Steve. Lots of nice detail. One would not blow a spider up to poster sized anyway..except maybe Carol.
