Very nice, I'll get it some cocoa. By the way how big are these ? Wondering if I need a macro lens to shoot huntsmen spiders. Our huntsmen are hairy like these and are generally anywhere between 1-4 inches across.

Oh my...1-4 inches...not sure I would get close to a spider that big :G This jumper was a bit of a 1/4 inch. Still fairly small but I was comparing it to the very small Zebra spiders I have been spotting. ) Anyways, I probably could have used my native macro but would have had to get much closer...that is a draw back with things that scare off.

You don't really need closeup lenses for a 4 inch spider, but it is so much more fun. This giant crab spider was about 4 inches. This was taken with the DCR-250 and the big lens from the DCR5320 for 11 diopters.
