1: Good, but you could have zoomed out here a bit to take the whole spider.

2: It would have been better here not to look down to the spider but to have a front view.

3: Looks a bit unsharp. There's not much detail (noise reduction?).

4: Nice, although the sharpness is not optimal. I often see one of these in the garden. It's a Cereal Leaf Beetle.

5: Good shot! I guess you couldn't hold the camera much lower here.

6: Very nice!

7, 8, 9: I like 8 bestof these wolf spider pics. Nice perspective and good sharpness.

Thank you Stoney!
I'm allways trying front view but many times it is impossible like in the first spider shots (the grass has grown too high).
3rd one is a crop from the second.
Thank you for the helpful ideas!
I like your last post very much!
What kind of spider is the first one and what is the name is in English the insect on the 5th and 6th?
Thx

The first spider could be a nursery web spider (pisaura mirabilis). The insect on the 5th and 6th is a water strider.

But I'm not a zoologist, so no guarantee (almost all ofmy knowledge is from the web ).

I can see that flash was used. Can you share how it was used? i.e. direct flash? Ext flash direct? Bounced? Seems like the flash are too harsh for some of them.

BTW, your pondskater there looks different from those we have here in S'pore!

Have you considered an ext flash? Bouncing it would prevent the flash from being too harsh. Just my 2c.

Taken my earlier outdoor macros with the 6t looks like the inbuilt flash is very useable, like on the last 5 picture.
ON some pictures You're right,very harsh and I don't like the hotspots, mostly on the 1st picture is terrible.I have an external flash and I think next time I will use it.
