A tiny spider I found around the size of a finger nail. Shot with 60mm and a 36mm extension tube outide in the sunlight.The camera flash was being blocked by the lens so used the natural light and had to go for the shallow dof.
Yes he is alive, so alive he jumped on my lens and him being so magnified through the view finder scared the crap out of me. Pitty about the mark on the white below him.

I love how sharp and crisp it is, but there is too much DOF for me.

This is fantastic! I can even see the different colors on the legs. Those eyes are just something else. What a clear shot!
