This was taken with my new 40D and just outside my back door. I've been dieing to take photos with my camera and I thought this would be a good opportunity. Was a bit tricky though as it was dark outside and if I had the back lights on the background would look nasty...so this was taken with no lights on, manual mode, manually focused, and with the on camera flash. I think next time I'll add on the 500D close up filter and get a little closer to this fuzzy spider
I hope I did not scare anyone ....tooo much.
my time on my camera is wrong...should be 11 pm not am *fixes camera*
just a tid bit of extra info the spider's body is about half an inch
