    I know, I know....I need to find some different subjects besides baby wolf spiders...they're just so darn cute, everywhere in my yard....and surprisingly easy to capture.

    You are really getting these spider shots down to a science. The spiders may not be cute, but they are very interesting.
    I like the short stories with them as well.

    Thank you sir...I appreciate it. I'm shocked at how "friendly" these little guys are and how close they let me get without running off. As long as I use slow movements, they don't seem to mind me at all...that sure helps a lot.

    That is wicked. I wonder how he knows which set of eyes he is looking through?

    These are plain GOOD!
    Very well focussed ... and their "surround-eyes" are really something, most of all when you see them from behind - and you STILL SEE EYES! :shock:

    Thanks all.

    DBJ - I was probably about 1 foot away or so..maybe a hair less. I was at minimum focus distance and 1:1 and I think that is about 10-12" from end of lens to subject.

    LaFoto - Thank you. His eyes were truly crazy and it explains why he could see me coming no matter where I was coming from.
