Played with this one I found in my garden... left it late in the day so had to use flash to get adequate lighting. Hard to focus as the web kept blowing in the wind.

This one seems to have lost two legs...

Closer - taken at 3x optical magnification and cropped.

I was bored this weekend and avoiding writing a final paper so I took a quick walk around the backyard

Juvenile Grass Spider: (Agelenopsis naevia)
These guys are fast and easily unnerved, not the best composition in the world. I lost him a few seconds after this.

Image

Bowl-and-Doily Spider (female): (Frontinella communis)
These guys are tiny, I really need a set of extension tubes to be able to do anything with them.

A quick one from today... this one seemed to be spinning a web and hardly kept still apart from when a bee flew past where it hid behind a flower.

I'm unsure wich one work best if the original with catchlight or the one with catchlight removed, I had a 50% weight on each image when uploaded, but received respectful feedback of my flickr contacts about which one is better, interesting to see what the group think about it:

Edited catchlight

I prefer the one with, as the one without seems a bit... dull in comparison.

If you do like an edit though, I wonder how it would look if you took out the line structure in the catchlight itself?

We just had 4 days of severe rain and fair cold, it was the first opportunity for macro in the week and these jumpers managed to make nice rain protected homes for the winter. I don't want to disturb them but at least need to register it.

In the end of day I discovered these web based homes are the best flash diffusers I have seen to date.

f/11 | 1/100s | iso 100 | FEC +1/3
Canon T1i with Canon MP-E 65mm @ 5x.
580 EX II flash bracket mounted with a LumiQuest Mini SoftBox diffuser near the lens and silver bounce at right.

A widefield shoot of the dried leaf were he build the protected home.
