wow amazing, im never disapointed with your posts they always deliver! i really like the way you draw the viewing of the images in close by each shot as tempting us in for the final photo. how do you get such clear images that close up?

Brilliant shots. Sorry to be Mr. Thicko but what does 'focus stacked' mean.

Thanks

Brian

Thanks for the comments :)

Brian - focus stacking is taking several shots at different focus depths and then combining them back into one picture to give greater DOF. more info here

Nice shots. Looks like what we call here in Chicago Daddy long legs.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Thanks Alistair, Linda and Geoff for the comments.

Alistair/Linda - it's only the second time I've seen one of these flat against a leaf - did a double take when I spotted it. I actually managed to cut the leaf off without disturbing it for the high mag shots and the spider only moved when I put the leaf back in the bush :)
