Just Mum and the lil' ones...

In my garden, sheltered beneath the wheelbarrow -- it seemed like a nice little family scene...

Yep that time of year. I have a few spiders out in the tool shed that look similar to this one here, probably are the same I bet. Haven't seen any young'uns yet though. Nice family image there Rik. :D

Very nice! :D Which DOF you achieved with f/22? Besides, I found this nice site with interesting links for everyone who consider about depth of field and digital photography in general: DOFMaster

Oh, nice one. The little ones are always cute, but I do not think I would want to have all of them at one time :shock:

Excellent shot Rik, very detailed. I wonder what they eat when they are this small. Maybe they don`t eat until they balloon away on their own.

I think they eat each other and only the strong survive.

Thanks for comments, everybody!

MacroLuv, according to DOFMaster, total DOF is about 1.7mm .

It's actually more like 2.5mm for this web-sized image, since fewer pixels corresponds to a larger circle of confusion (which DOFMaster won't let me set).

In any case, what my 300D gets at f/22 is about the same as your SP-320 would get at f/11, for this size subject. (The difference is due to sensor sizes, but I don't want to get into that swamp here.)

Trying to get more DOF by stopping down even farther would not be a good idea. At 1:1 and f/22, the image is already getting fuzzy from diffraction -- there's not much detail beyond what I posted. See here for more discussion & illustrations of resolution vs aperture for this lens at 1:1.

You had to have lots of light at F22 because those little ones aren't moving. Normally, at F22 you're looking at a fairly lengthy exposure, but I don't see much movement to implicate that here.

Very nice picture my friend.

Strobe = electronic flash. An ancient Pentax AF200T on manual 1/8 power, held at end of lens. Effective speed around 1/8000 second. Even so, I had gobs of light -- this was at ISO 100.

Thanks for the compliment!
