Interesting features Are you out of your Vulcan mind? If there was one a little bigger, like say 6 feet tall, would you still say its has interesting features? They just give me the creeps no matter how small they are.
But good job Simon (with creeping me out).

Absolutly wonderful Simon. I have a touch of arachnephobia so these pictures give me a thrill. But I just cannot take my eye's off them. I'm very thankfull that they are as small as they are, and that we don't have the dangerous ones in Northern Europe.

The pictures are fantasitically clear and the dof looks spot on to me as I can count the hair on it's leggs and all eight eye's.

Okay, now I need a stiff drink to calm my nerves...

looks like you are really enjoying your macro lens and closeup filter.
