    Wow fantastic shot Jason, excellent details! Love these little guy’s……not on me though!

  • Haha thanks Kerry :) As I’m sure you know you have to get very close to get this kind of magnification so I’m always worried the little guys will jump on me/my camera and get hurt, but it hasn’t happened yet (to my knowledge at least… haha)

    Excellent macro, Jason. That’s what I like about the 150mm macro. I don’t have to get so close!!(haha)

  • Haha very true :) Sometimes it’s helful when trying for the right angle though I suppose :) However if you start using tubes you’ll be forced to use shorter working distances ;)

    Yep, been there, done that. I decided to go for the longer lens ‘cos, not only am I a tad scared of spiders, but sometimes when you have to get so close the little critters run away. They just don’t play by the rules!!:)

  • Very very true Ann :)
