project365 – March 18, 2012 – Spee-ider

How many of you squish versus leave alone versus escort out to the garden? I usually escort outside, especially if the kids are around, and only occasionally do I squish. Mr. Longlegs here was crawling around on the bathroom wall, begging to have his picture taken, so I obliged. Since I didn’t want to squish him, and I was feeling too lazy to escort him outside, I left him alone. This was taken with my Nikon D80 and 60mm macro lens, with the flash bounced on the perpendicular wall towards camera right. This was taken at an f/13.0 aperture, which clearly was not enough. I tried to get a better angle on him to keep his whole torso in focus, but this shot came out best, despite the out of focus spider bum. I would love to try a focus stacking technique someday, maybe in a future pic of the day.

    • Thank you! I’m a bit behind with my posts right now because it takes me a while to get the words out… writing is hard! The pictures are taken each day and queued up though, so stay tuned 🙂
