As I mentioned to someone yesterday (whose name escapes me at the moment) when I'm doing these stacked images of live specimens I've taken to naming them.....This one was christened Fang, for obvious reasons. I know I'm mad as a box of frogs, the wife's been telling me that for years.
I've no idea of the species, spiders really arn't my thing, but this fella seemed to be fairly relaxed and compliant so I thought I'd try and do a stack of him. There's a little bit of haloing around some of the hairs especially on his legs, but I can live with this especially as he was alive and was returned to the wild unharmed. He wasn't very big, I suppose with legs he was about 10-12mm in width, of special note and to help you all with the scale. If you look carefully you'll see that I managed to capture him slightly propped up so as to see his hangs. I used the first thing that came to hand to do this, which was a pair of very thin self closing tweezers (the metallic thing in the bottom of the shot). These were quite expensive tweezers, although I think I shall be taking them back as you can see all the flaws in the surface of the metal
Any how, hope you enjoy having a peep and none of you dive for cover behind your chairs, many thanks once again for all the positive comments on yesterdays image of an aphid, I didn't think it would be that popular as it wasn't the best shot in the world, but as I said I'm still learning to get to grips with this lens.....
