I Want to Grow Up
Lens: Irix 150mm macro Camera: K-3ii Photo Location: Cibolo Nature Center, Boerne, TX ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F20 
Posted By: ToddK, 09-08-2021, 11:49 AM

to be a BIG spider! Or maybe, just living out the day would be good... This is a very large female black & yellow garden spider which I spotted under a roof over a picnic bench, and a very tiny spider that I didn't see until I was processing the photo. I couldn't get another angle and the only shot was directly into the bright sky, but I was able to bring out some of the details in PP.

Nice detailed macro shot. Even the tiny spider to the left has pretty good detail for its size in relation to the garden spider.

Catching a two for one was very good.

Good detail for the difficulty of the shot, I'd say!
But it's perfect for something else that I really like; the silhouettes of the web and spider's legs attached to the web where the weight of huge fat spider pulls angles down in the web's guy lines.
Angky.

Wow! Todd, you have taken to macro shots like a duck to water in recent months! F20...! No wonder you got such excellent detail - that and the PP.

Thanks Angky! I had several shots and found the one that showed the web the best, which to me makes it much more interesting.

Thanks Peter! I have definitely learned more about macro since acquiring the Irix 150 mm. It is a much different process than working with the shorter FL macros.
