    This little cutie was in an abandoned and broken wasp nest. I guess he call it home. I didn’t know they are so beautiful, and have eight eyes !

    Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens @ (I think) 3X magnification. Also, Canon MR-14EX Ring Flash used. Of course you can see this from the eyes reflection.

    I must try focus stacking software for better DOF.

    That is just cool and creepy. I will never take a picture like that because I won’t get close enough to something like that!

    Aww, don’t afraid. I think jumpers have more species than any other spider, and bite more also, but it’s not a real harm on you, and they are sooo cute. Sometimes they will jump on you lens, but jump back. It’s just to say they don’t fear you, and go away from my feeding area. I was here first. 😆

    Serious, you can take some nice macro as this if you have a 100mm+ macro lens, but you will be limit to about 1X magnification. 100mm+ macro lens will give some distance from the subject, and no one has a traumatic experience. Critter, or you. Enjoy the small world ! 8)

    MP-E 65mm lens is as a microscope, and you must be VERY close for a focus on you subject….Also, VERY shallow DOF !

    The above image is weak example of what this lens is capable of. It was one of my first photos with it, and is little bit soft.

    It can be more sharp next time. This lens has a potential for it, and I will try to make it possible. Thank you for compliment, Lady E……Your “BeetleHump” entry in the “Bugs” contest was a thing of beauty !!…..I enjoyed that one VERY much !!! Congrats on the win. Well deserved ! 8)

    *grin* thanks–bug porn seems to be a special calling of mine: I have probably the only Bug Pr0n set on Flickr 😉

    I’ve heard of focus stacking–what all does that entail? I’m guessing you have to take multiple shots at various focal distances then put them together in post? Seems like that would be difficult with critters who are likely to move at less than a moment’s notice…

    Rather than try to explain in my words, I’ll show you the MASTER of focus stacking himself…Lord V was my main inspiration for buying the Canon MP-E macro lens. This good fellow is a wealth of knowledge, and his Flickr gallery almost bring a tear to my eyes. 😯

    Below is a link for his top 100 most interesting. Amazing stuff.

    I’ve seen Lord V’s stuff on Flickr–infuckingcredible for sure. His stereoscopic stuff is crazy. Thanks for his tutorial link–interesting and helpful.
