As the spider's "face" was in the shade I feel these lack a clear interest point, but still, the lens is sharp enough. Caught these at 300mm, handheld in the wind.

Hi,

Yes, I do agree those images are sharp indeed!

Spiders, ugly little creature with a face only a mother could love. They do provide a good service however, and keep my basement and garage free of nastier little creatures.

Yeah, I remember going into this winery and the place was full of spiders. When I asked why, and if that was a ploy to try to impress consumers with an "agey" feel, they said that no, it was actually the easiest and most cost effective way of keeping termites away from the barrels.

Impressive shots, I didn't know...or care to find out about those 'hairs' of sensors all over them.

A few more with the 70-300, now just have to get a good monopod, as 300mm handheld is a struggle

It may have been a struggle hand-held, buy you pulled it off very well! These are excellent.

As a soldier I can endure the heat of the Persian Gulf, the bitter cold of Kosovo or even the high altitudes of Afghanistan....yet I hate arachnids!!!!:-)

Nice, yet scary pictures.

This is a truly remarkable lens, especially for the price.
