Default Close-up of a garden spider

I don't know the name of the spider. It is just a spider in my sister's backyard. Taken with the 18-55mm OIS kit lens on the NX100. This lens can get pretty close but by no means a macro.

Thank you for the info. European garden spider? What is it doing in America?

G'day mate

Well done with your pic > love the backlighting showing thru the spider's legs too
It's a nice sharp & well focussed image - you should not feel the absence of a macro lens - tho I well realise that "something else" may give you more scope

Regards, Phil

Thanks Donald and Phil! I am pretty happy with this lens much more than the 20-50mm non-OIS. It makes the NX100 a much better camera.
