Tom, how about sharing the tech data on this shot? Lens, distance to subject, etc.

Ohenry, I was taking a quick lap around my yard in an effort to gather some varied shots with a Canon 20D to send to a friend to show him the camera's output. I happened on this spyder by chance and grabbed a few quick shots. It was late afternoon and this was in full shade flat light. I Had to go up to ISO800 to get enough shutter speed to stop the spyders gentle swaying. I thought the light may be a little flat so I tried a shot with the onboard flash and this is the cropped result.I wish I had a decent macro lens to capture but as my luck runs this was the 18-55mm kit lens. I think it does speak pretty highly of the ability of this little plastic lens, you sure can't beat the price.

So in answer to your question, 20D, 18-55mm @ 55, f5.6 which is wide open on this lens, onboard flash on which gave me a 200th shutter. The image is cropped and run through Noise Ninja to clean up the effects of the ISO800. I sharpened the final with a method EricCan posted some time back.

Very impressive ... the kit lens wide open at ISO 800 .... Shows what a properly exposed and focused shot will do.
