Crab Spider
Another garden treasure. My arachnophobia is definately improving ... getting up close wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!

A super macro with excellent detail and dof and the diagonal composition works a treat, excellent, luv it.

Thank you

Gosh Cheryl you are brave, to get close up & even take the time to get another super sharp shot of the spider, of which you can see all the hairs on his legs as well. You a lot braver than me .
You can still make the size bigger which would fill the screen by making it 2000 pixels max longest edge & no more than 1MB

Thanks Helen. I am still confused by the size of the images as the FAQ gives dimensions and I cant find reference to the bigger size .. please advise on where I need to look.

Hi Cheryl, You have to go to the Forum & members only for details. If you wanted to put on the site a new post about something eg, Absent for the month you would go to the Form then members only & click on New Post. For the gallery the sizes as I mentioned make the longest edge no more than 2000 pixels and the size no more than 1MB, then that will fill the screen when viewed. When you add a photo to a post on the forum you would make it 800pixels on the longest side & 250K size. It just takes a bit if time to get used to your way around the site, so wouldn't worry about. just give a shout again if you get stuck . Hope you understand this as not very good at explaining things.

Yet another great shot and 'compositionally' perfect IMHO. The diagonal stalk is ideal and with the spider scrambling (Is that what they do?) into the picture with its eyes just off centre.
Your macro shots are excellent, I found that using my compact gave better DoF and thereby better results. With a DSLR I would be suggesting changing the shutter speed to slower and closing the aperture down to increase DoF. I would also need to perhaps increase the ISO to at least 250 maybe 400. But as I said, with your camera it works a treat.
