Wow! #3 is incredible. Well, #1 is also incredible, almost scary to know that such things are among us. I'm amazed how you were able to get these shots.

Really amazing shots! What kind of lens were you using with the FZ? How close were you able to get to that snake?

thanks for the comments , shots on the spider were with LC55 + Raynox 250

the snake was very small, maybe only 12-14 inches, and I shot it with the LC55 , very difficult hand held, they move so fast! Hehe, I was covered in muck! Snake shots could be sharper for sure, next time.

So you stacked the LC55 and the Raynox? Very interesting! I have to try that.

Nice. I have a Raynox 150 and LC55 and know how I am going to shoot my next tiny ladybug. Thanks.

Absolutely gorgeous shots. Not a spider person, but No.1 is fantastic with No.3 being my fave - superb shot.
