    Just a few spiders and bees photos from the past week

    1. While looking for spiders, I looked down and saw this guy on the leg of my lightstand. Made it a little difficult for lighting.

    2. I think I need to give a shot at focus stacking

    3. This guy was probably an 1/8 of an inch big. This is at 1:2 so that gives you an idea.

    You post light stand, I read night stand. Makes a world of a distance.

    What lens were you shooting with (for that first picture)?

    Very nice bee images - the second one is a better one IMO (more of the flower in focus).

    Yeah, that makes a big difference. If it was the nightstand I don't think I would have been as pleased to see him. All of these were shot with the Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro and an SB-600. Spider pics were SB-600 off camera and the Bee pics were SB-600 on the hot shoe.

    Thanks. So you prefer the ones with the motion in the wings out of the three bee pictures? I think the last of the bee pictures is my fav of those three.

    Not sure of the forum etiquette of responding with a picture, but that bee reminds me of a shot I recently got.

    Thanks John and 512.....and Denny...yeah, I'd prefer if you start your own thread with your images and then just post a link to the thread. I usually only see people post additional images if it's a "post images of" thread.
