I also tried some spider shots with the new macro today. I am finding this to be a very challenging lens and much less forgiving than my 80mm 1:2 macro. At the end of a session my arms feel like rubber from trying to hold the camera perfectly still. There were several spiders who agreed to pose today, along with a lizard or two, these are the best of the shots.

BTW, if you are trying to get just the right angle on a spider and back your rear end into a nest of these guys you WILL get a rude awakening. I was proud of myself, I did not drop the camera during my rapid retreat and, after they had calmed down, I went back to photograph them too.

Also, after reading the thread on preferred size for images in the forum I realized I have probably been one of the offenders. I have been resizing to a width of 1002, these images have been resized to a width of 800. If this is still too big and messes someone up please let me know.

Thanks for looking,
Tim

What weird-looking spiders. I only like them in someone else's pictures. I do love your lizard, though, they are fun and I could shoot them all day long though half would be blank screens or out of focus - the ones around here aren't tame at all and are as fast as lightning! Really like like them.
