Love the bark lynx shot. Camouflage is such a great defense.

Really top notch work. In the summer I usually have a few Banana spiders living in their webs on our house eves. The females can get really big. I just bought a Rebel T3i 18-55mm and obviously that lens won't 'cut it'. What would you suggest?


Who's mom kidding, I don't see any electricity in there.

Thank you very much. Florida is a great place to live for the macro shooter, that is for sure :cool:

Thank you very much.

Regarding lenses, I would definitely move away from the 18-55 and into something that will reward you for your time spent. If you're looking for banana spiders (Nephila clavipes), a 100mm macro would do you well (either old version or L). I actually prefer the 180mmL macro to either of those, but it would be a bit lopsided on a T3i :)

If you hand-hold alot, the 100m L macro is the way to go IMO.

Looks like pottery/glass, doesn't it? :D
