    Bobo, very nice set! Very good DoF and details. I dont think tight crops are a rule to be always followed. Sometimes it is nice to have a context added to the main subject, in my opinion. That is exactly what happens,for instance, in #1, which is my favourite in this set. Well done and thanks for sharing!!

    Kindest regards...

    Thanks Otavio.
    -
    You are right about context. For example #1-#4 are able to take extreme crops but that takes away all of their intricate web structures.

    Unfortunately in 3 and 4 was unable to catch the web due to the awkward angles but did catch the little spider along with the big one. So there is still context though the sharpness of the little one leaves a bit to be desired. Maybe can reshoot that another day.

    In #5 I was only interested in the web which was about 15 feet away and hanging high over a stream. The spider on the branch only showed up on the monitor.

    Hi Bobo,
    You want me to be honest - I like your dragon flies better. If you can do with the spiders what you do with the dragon flies it will be great.
    A challange to get the spiders as good as the dragon flies.

    Thanks Andre. That is probably due to physical issues - dragonflies are much larger and more in the open so it is not necessary to contort, kneel, point camera into little nooks, deal with poor light etc. Will certainly try while I am here.

    Thanks Kenny - understandable, many people are. Hopefully more seeing more shots will make you feel more comfortable.
