Yikes! It's a good thing this spider isn't the size of a dog. It would have eaten you.

This shot must have taken some patience.

Very nice! Which extension tube setup did you use? And was this shot done in AF or MF mode?
Reply
:icondark-raptor:
Dark-Raptor Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Professional Photographer
Two sets of extension tubes were used - Kenko (for Nikon) and old M42 tubes. We shoot our macro shots only in MF mode, especially that for this picture reversed lens was used ;)

This photo is awesome. Fantastic.
I use a reversed lens and have to crop. Must try the tubes as well.

Yes. With extension tubes you can get fantastic magnifications.
