Fascinating the pattern that spider is doing! Thanks for sharing Andrew.

Are they generally pretty patient with you being so close like that or does the lens tend to freak them out? I've never done any macro work myself and constantly marvel at the incredible work displayed here. - Stu

Wonderful series of shots - think #2 is a soldier fly with extreme eyes.

the lens is the Canon EF 100mm f2.8 lens. Some of those shots have also involved various extension tubes (Kenko variety) with the 100 macro lens
