Very nice.

Spiders are one of my favourite subjects too,

and I have long been a fan of the lowly closeup lens.

The Exif says you used flash and F/4.

If it had been me, I'ld have stopped it downsome

to get the hairs on the far legs, but that's subjective...

Your shallow focal depthimparts a sort of intimacy,

as though we, the viewers, were of that scale, and thus

able to focus only on the near legs, the others

being "off in the distance". I like it. Bravo.

another cool way of getting nice macros is to use a step up or down ring to match your filter threads (Fuji S5000 is 55mm) to an old 50mm lens (or other small sized lens) and mount it backwards....you can find old 50mm lenses for $20 or so with the ring costing $7.....

I was able to get these with the Fuji S5000 and an inverted old Nikon 50mm lens with 52mm threading.......
