nice pics. i am purchasing a macro lens soon and am undecided between the nikon 4t and the raynox dcr 250. a lot of people talk about difficulty using the raynox macro lens. you obviously do not have this problem. can you share your experience with this lens? is it really technically difficult to get good macros? were your spider shots hand held? thanks!

Well, the diffculty lies mainly in the shallow DOF.This has two consequences:

- You shouldchoose F8.0 when possible and thus have long shutter times.

- If you move the camera slightly forward oder backward(unintentionally) the object is out of focus.

Thereforehand held shots are very difficult, but using a tripod is impractical for shooting insects or spiders near the ground. So what I always try to do is to rest the camera or my hands on something (e.g. on the ground or - if the object is alittle higher - on my legs while I'm sitting). Then I use the burst mode and take a couple of photos until I'm sureof havingsome good ones.

For first the spider photo aboveI leaned the camera on the stump where the spider was sitting on. Then it jumped on a leaf and Irested my hands on the ground for the other photos.

Thanks!

Normally, I hate them too (arachnophobia!), but I just love these little jumping spiders.

Just as well it didn't actually jump then! (LOL!)

They are really great shots with amazing detail. Were they all at F8, and how far away/what zoom setting please? Have you tried any other close-up lenses on your FZ3? Thanks.
