Well, that was sure worth the effort!

My favorites are the three last ones. Amazing "hair" detail on #4 and #6, and #5 is simply great in everything: focal point, sharpness, color, composition - you nailed it.

Congrats!

Where did you find that many spiders? And did you do all those handheld or with a tripod/macro rail?

Thank you I agree they are my fav as well. I have a national park with a large wildflower field I walk through. Seems every sider has the same idea there. I hand held all of these.

I was going to ask the same question.  That's a nice variety of spiders you have there.  I love spiders myself and these are some great shots.

Yes, well done!  And the wide variety of spiders is great too.  You must have pretty good hand holding technique and/or less fear of spiders than I which probably is causing me to shake too much for SR to keep up with
