another experiment with the extension tubes, this time using an old Tokina 24mm reversed. Not a lot of luck with the depth of field but will keep trying

Hello, Bumble. Looking at your portfolio, I think you are producing wonderful work with the equipment available to you. This shot, however, is not quite up to your usual standard. You were obviously focusing on those amazing eyes, but the dof is very shallow, and in fact you have pointed out that it is a problem for you. I also feel there is a jumble of legs and other bits of the spider, some of which are in focus and some of which are not. I admire your tenacity for experimentation, as well as your ability to get so close to a critter like this. You have catchlights in all of the eyes, too. Looking forward to seeing more.
