Start of a new Thread, dealing with spiders.

Here is my first shot:

A wolf spider (Lycosidae Gen. sp.)with an egg cocoon.

Hopefully you will also post your spider shots from all over the world in this thread.

Cheers,

Stefan

Square One,

yes it is the Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 D, a really fantastic lens, but is really hard to manage the DOF.

ISO400, f/16, 1/125s

The D7000 gives me much more possibilities and much better IQ than the FZ40/45.

Thanks for your kind and motivating comment.

Cheers,

Stefan

Took this before I evicted this young jumping spider from my binoculars I left out on the back porch.
