As per the title, a few spiders in the garden today at lunchtime, theirs not mine.

Usual macro setup, k3ii + tubes + 105mm macro + modified ringflash all handheld as ever.

Thanks Peter

Hi Stuart. The ring Flash was too harsh for extreme closeups. Leaving lots of shiny spots.
I made up a homemade diffuser to soften it using a plastic mixing bowl, half an empty coffee tin and some underlay for laminate flooring

Nice set of spiders, good lighting and excellent detail.

Your homemade diffuser works well

Fantastic! They rather put my feeble early attempts at macro to shame...
Come and see the beautiful things I see in the ordinary world.

Derek is one of the best I've seen on these forums so it's perfectly acceptable that he comes up with better stuff than us
All the gear with no idea

Excellent shots Derek, spiders are not easy as they require a lot of DOF.
