Artist's Description

I know, I promised that I wouldn’t post any more shots of Boris the spider. That was before I saw a challenge that I MUST enter. My most sincere apologies, to all Arachnophobes on RedBubble!

It was a “Double Dog Dare”. How could I have possibly refused?


This closeup macro photo was taken with a Canon EOS 10D through a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 0.3 sec at f/8, no flash. I was at the closest focusing distance permitted by my lens. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

The image has been cropped to “accentuate the eyes”, otherwise, untouched.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
