My first spider pic.

This spider has lived outside the bicycle rack for about a week. I walk pass by it almost everyday. Since it is going to stay so I took a few shot of my new neighbour.

Another shot.

I am new to macro photos. Shot with an old Sigma 24/2.8. It claims that it is a macro lens but with only 1:4... Anyone can recommend some cheap but good macro lens? Any C&C are welcome!

Get an old manual focus lens. Either the Tamron 90 or Pentax 1:4 100mm. You'll find both on Ebay.

Keywords: Charming, polite, and generally agreeable.

A good attempt without a macro lens. A Garden Cross Spider. Most of these in my garden pose with their underside showing so I tend not to photograph them.
The older I get the faster I was.
