Problem/Question: Macro work with a77 above f11

Hello out there!

Today I tried the first time real macro work with my a77... it's a little spider, inside the house so no wind, on a tripod, steady shot of, radio release, manual focus... Lens is SAL100/2.8...

When I took f6.3 or so I could get crisp pictures of parts of the spider, no problem. But then I wanted to have the whole creature in focus and changed f number to f13 or f18, and not a single part of the spider was sharp I did not change focus, just f-number...

Is this a problem of the 24 MP sensor of the a77, or did I do something wrong? I used the focus magnifiction and everything looked finde, but did not help...

What can I do?

Thanks in advance!
