Description: This is my new pet spider, Harry. He doesn't eat, is very very quiet, and never ever makes a mess. Harry is dead.

He looks like a victim of your bottled lightning experiment. Smile Closeup with so much dof! Is it a crop from a larger file? Or maybe focus stacking? Or magic that I don't know about, which is most magic. It's a very, very good macro piece, James.

Thanks Jack, Not a victim...my son found him between the storm window, and the window sash...already dead. He is all of 5/16ths of an inch. Recently, I picked up an old minty nikkor 200mm f4 AI-S Micro, and I added three extension tubes to make six exposures which I focus stacked with a method I made up as I went along. In fact, this is my first focus stacked image ever. Here is a 100% crop of the eyes...
