daddy-long-legs spider or cellar spider

Saw this lady crawling over the ceeling, took some shot's before I helped her out the house. (all taken with a k10d + kiron105mm + flash (except one))

Any C&C always welcome, and if someone knows the name of the last one I would be very thankfull.

Ronny.



Doesn't show the hard work she's preforming, a bit closer crop can help


Same lady with a Tamron 70-300 macro and another angle


At the same time this one was looking it nothing was going to drop


and a bit closer crop (changed the exposure a bit)

Can't tell what spiders they are, but I sure can tell that your photos of them are very fine. I esp. like the close crop. What if you do the same to #4?

Unbelievably sharp images, focus is absolutely perfect. Even the eggs are in the DOF, really outstanding!

Very well taken, macro and flash not so easy.

Impressive shots - you should be really proud of them. Have no idea what type of spider she is - I really don't like spiders at all.

Thanks Kjell

The first one is that cellar spider, the second one is the unknown.
Added a closer crop of the 4th one.

Thanks Rodney,

but I dare to disagree, for me macro combined with an external flash is much easier.

They (the spiders) where in a rather dark spot and if I would have taken the shot without flash I propably would have had shuttertimes larger than 2". What would have meant that I had to get my tripod, remote control ... and they should have stayed very motionless.

The first shot's where with a softbox diffuser, the last one was bounced of the wall to the left.

Thanks Harriet,

I'm not going to tell you I like spiders but I've been amazed by how many different types are around. And some of them have really nice colors. So I'm slowly making a collection of them. And to prove they sometime look colorfull one more
