Found this guy on the roof of my truck as I was pumping gas one night. Macro lens was already on the camera in the bag right there in the front seat.

I reprocessed this one using Lightroom 4 from the original .NEF

I picked this image because it was one of the ones in my portfolio w/ the most comments and lots of views and a favorite.

If I'd try to go through my whole collection, I'd have lost my mind...

A bit unnerving, this perspective! I like the reflection. I think I'd like a tad more DOF, too, to make those advancing front legs even more menacing, but I know spiders aren't always cooperative enough to wait while you change camera settings.

He was moving towards you?? I admire your guts!

I love how the reflection comes from the area on the surface which is completely out of the focus range, but since the light's path length is the same as the focus distance, it's clear as day. Clever and menacing
