Well, the angled cross-member of the gate actually. Same sort of thing though...

This was in then shaded part of the garden at the time - the sun had gone a bit too far for me to use all natural light, and the stiff breeze was actually moving the harvestman's legs which must have been shaking its body a little bit, cos it just wouldn't get sharp without use of the ringflash.

Anyway, the ring made for nice little highlight in the creatures eyes.

Sigma 105 lens used with all 3 extension tubes.

C&C as always appreciated.

An amazing capture - I've been sitting on a similar one (image, not harvestman!) for a while now. This is one of those images that, although it is superb in its details, isn't popular with the EPZ folk. Brilliantly caught though, they are fascinating creatures!
