Macrophotography and spiders

I have been exploring macrophotography, and I find that bugs make fascinating subjects for close-up, detailed shots! How fun!

This little fella is so tiny!

I also explored working with RAW images, in getting the hue and brightness shown here. The waning sunlight of the day shone nearly clean through this little spider, which makes for a transparency and glow effect that I just love! Other angles offered a less-angelic perspective, but seeing a creepy little crawley backlit, with his eyes in bright contrast — I dig it!
