i had to put a flower on the floor on the grass..i then placed the spider on the flower..for about 10 mins it was trying to walk off.i kepted on putting the spider back on the flower..after doing this for about 10 mins or so it stoped long enough for me to take some shots.
shot outdoors hence why i have a green background(grass)
i place my hand on the floor and sort of raise my index finger and my thumb..i can then rest my rig on it.Soon as i can barrow another camara il get some shots of me while im shooting insects.
still in the box a..you should be ashamed of your self..throw all your other lens in the bin and get the mpe-65 welded on your camara..its the only lens i use:)

Thanks!
Welded eh? Ha! Ha!
I have countless vermin in my wooded yard, big centipedes among them, walking sticks, mantids and something called a geji-geji (a type of long legged centipede) as well as Japanese giant hornets (very dangerous) and Rhino beetles. As soon as I get that lens out of the box, I'll try some shots and post here. I really like the 180L macro lens for distance (if...I shoot hornets!). And aside, is there any step by step threads on dew drop shots. I really like them. Do some folks spray water to make them, or all naturally occuring? I don't see many this time of year. Can they be made in the studio (indoors)? I think I will become a macroaddict!
Again thanks!
John
