Who would believe me if I said I took this pic with my 18-55mm lens?

superb did you use a magnifying glass

Far too close for me :-)

No I did not. I only used the lens. But I did place a glass upside down on the spider to prevent it from escaping the "photo shoot". That is what you see in the other pics of the spider.

Nov 04 2011 13:33 GMT Liebenberg1312
So close and a bit out of focus

I would need a zoom lens of a million miles to get a closeup like this, brilliant work but so creepy
Nov 04 2011 14:08 GMT Liebenberg1312
You don't need a zoom lens for this kind of closeup, aal you need is a 18-55mm lens.

Awesome close up....spiders creep me out but I do not kill them ever just trap them then put them outdoors....

Thank you. I on the onther hand have no problem with spiders. But I do remove them from the house for their own safty....

Very good close up capture.
I'm with Don; I used to take captures of spiders and then put them outside, (or over in the neighbours), when I lived in NZ, but since I have lived in Aussie I don't know whether they are dangerous or not, so I take captures and dispatch them if they are indoors and leave them alone when they are outdoors.
This looks rather large, but it may be harmless.

i love this!

Thank you Littleollie.
This one is harmless we don's have to many dangerous ones.

Thank you blue

wow, too close for me, (although I do not like spiders, I too remove them from the house without harm except for the dangerous ones, which I kill.)
Nov 28 2011 13:40 GMT Liebenberg1312
Like I said before: Live and let Live :)

I don't know if I would have...it is a brave shot. I might have taken it with my 300mm macro.

Not so brave, I placed a glass over the spider
