I’ve been sitting around my apartment and finding these spiders crawling about. They are only about the size of my thumbnail, and look rather harmless. But when you take a micro lens to them they start to look like giant monsters! Nancy found the one in this photograph crawling down the headboard of the bed the other day.
I really want to get a bellows system for my lenses so I can go in even closer on these subjects. I want to start fringing on the microscopic. It would be interesting to start studying just an eye full frame, or maybe the hair on one of the legs. Anyway, I hope to capture some more macro shots over the coming days. I’ve been looking for butterflies and moths, but the birds are getting them fast. Yesterday I was about to start shooting a butterfly and a bird swooped down in front of me and picked it right off the tree! Doh!
