macro photo of a cross orbweaver spider
 
Hi all,

Here is a macro photo of a cross orbweaver spider (Araneus diadematus) that I put up on my blog yesterday. I was using this picture as one example of how to crop an image.

Cheers,
EC

Fuzzy little critter, isn't it? :)

About 1/2 inch across. Maybe a bit bigger.

I need a lens that can do that on my camera, Nikon D5100. So not fair...

Get yourself a nice Nikkor Micro lens.

Not sure if the 5100 can use AIS lenses...
If it can, you can always fine some great manual focus lenses for quite cheap.

Used Nikon 60mm Micro also works well if you don't need a lot of working distance from your subject. Tamaron 90mm macro is also a very good macro lens for the money.
