    While mowing the yard I noticed this big spider hanging out and after he caught his dinner I thought I would snap some shots.
    These were taken with a Canon S5 IS, my light P&S... Pretty hard to really see what your focus is so I had to kind of guess at it in Super Macro Mode.

    C&C would be nice, and a choice of the best one in your opinion.

    My lens was an inch away from him... couldnt see him except through the LCD screen unless I peaked around. Kinda creepy.

    Wow, these are pretty good for a P&S and viewing on the LCD to focus. Nice captures. I like the first shot the best.

    Thanks for all the comments....!

    The sun was setting over my back on these shots, and it was coming through full force so thats what I think was tricky to get around with the P&S. Either go dark with a crap flash, or have a couple blowouts.

    But yeah the camera was a bit tricky to get to focus perfectly... I COULD have been closer, but I REALLY dont like spiders so with that small of a camera, this is as close as I was willing to get :lol:
