Default Cob web Spider (presume common house spider (UK))

only 1 pic, as the majority are all simliar. only group of pics taken with my latest lens. An old manual sigma macro 50mm 2.8 lense. Taken at 1:1 but with a close up attachement. cant remember the actual once used tho. iso200 at 1/60 (i think lol)
If the rest of my macro pics come out like this pic does, then im pretty pleased with the lens

well i will get one eventually lol. one method im trying to perfect at the mo, is a bit crazy, but the magnification is unreal. its a tamron 70-300, full zoomed to 300mm macro, then a 24mm wide angle lens reversed on the front. its hard to hold, and i cant get enough light through handheld at the mo cos i cant sort a flash out. so far tho, ive tested it out on my bed sheets.. wierd i know lol...there made of cotton, and full frame i can get about 20 thread squares on 1 picture. if you get what i mean. also tested it on a cricket and got 2 cricket toes on 1 picture. so need to get that flash out. but at the mo, im happy to practice with this lens. its a great lens for the price i paid, and wil def get a raynox soon

Nice shot Jason!
I definitely second Simon's recommendation of the Raynox 250!
I just got one and can't believe the results I get.
BTW, if my calculations are correct. On the sheets,you say you're getting about 20 threads in one frame. I'm not positive but, I'm thinking the sensor on the K-X is about 1 inch, and common thread count on bed sheets generally are between 200- 300 threads per inch. That would mean you magnification would be 10-15:1. Pretty impressive!
