Took a brief walk out back before tonights episode of "24", and found these recently hatched spiders. Tiny little critters and lots of them.

Hi ya' Charlie, Very Happy

It is so hard to photograph a group of organisms like this within the confines of a narrow DOF. Was this a stack? I would guess not as much as these spiderlings would be moving around. You photographed these quite well. What'd you use to make this image, my friend Question

Best regards as always, Very Happy

Tom... it is kind of tough when you have a 3 dimensional mass made up of tiny individuals. I looked for a "plane" that gave me a decent number in focus... no possibility to "stack" as they were in constant motion. Two flashes were used. One was mounted on the lens and came in at about "10:30" relative to the subject. I held the other (by hand) at "3:00" and very slightly behind the subject. It was a Nikon D200 with Nikon 105mm macro. The flashes were the small wireless Nikon SB-R200.

Wow, I wish I'd seen that! Good job using your DOF, however you did it!

My yard is full of these little buggers or some similar! Confused Good thing they are small, thank goodness, it makes it easier to deal with them crawling on me when I am down on the grass trying to shoot a bug or bee of somekind. Laughing I like the colors and the markings on these little crawlers though. Beautiful shots Charlie Very Happy
