Not a macro but I thought it was a neat catch. Shot with an M6 Mark II.

Green Lynx Spider standing guard in front of a nest of young ones behind it. Heavy crop.

Nice shot! Certainly qualifies as a macro image!

Thank you. i'm going to take an actual macro to see if I can get a better shot of it. I've never seen the nest before.

ID verification if someone knows:

Banded Argiope? I think it is but I can't find a pic of one with coloring like this, although I know they vary.

*shot with M6 Mark II and 70-200 f4L via adapter

So I put an adapter on the M6 Mark II and tried out the AF and tracking using an older Sigma 150mm APO Maco (no IS). That lens is NOT a fast focusing lens by any means, but it gives significantly higher IQ over the EF-M 18-150 as well as 1:1 macro. It was pretty windy yesterday but overall I think the system tracked pretty well. Here is the same Green Lynx Spider I posted the other day. This time in some sun light and poised above the nest of young ones.

These spiders can apparently squirt venom up to 1 ft. away in defense. I had a shot or two of small drops of liquid at the end of the fangs, which I suspect is what happened. It was definitely wary of me and watching intently. I didn't disturb the plant or nest for the shots.

Bold Jumping Spider and a little Crab Spider. There actually two jumpers in the first photo, one is being eaten by the other. I'm not really sure which one is which. I think the eyes belong to the meal, not the feasting spider.

Going through some older photos on my computer, for some reason I really like this photo. Hope y'all do too!
