I took this 10 days ago ... it was so hard to use autofocus on this guy, my camera wanted to focus on everything behind him (I think this one worked because it was just water in the background, I have others where there are trees behind him). Anyhow, happy about the focus on this. He's smaller than a dime for sure. And he was moving pretty fast, I really got lucky with this one.

Great shot Gwen! If it would have been a snake, I wouldn't have opened, but spiders I am okay with!

Cool spider, I was trying to figure out if that's the underside of it--I think it is.....the DOF is so tricky on critters this small...I like how you can see the silk coming out of its spinner (aka butt! LOL) here.
Not always patient lol...the other day I was trying to gently sneak up on this cool jumping spider in the garden, but he kept speedily moving under the leaves/branches away from me, hiding and peeking I kept saying "geeze, relax!" LOL
Ok that's a creepy spider!!! Great shot though and I love the cropping on the second one.
