SONY A700 & 180mm (Curse of the Spider)
Well ... I popped in on a Spider and sat down beside her .... with the new A700 & the new TAMRON 180mm f/3.5 Macro.
I'm not making any excuses, but I have to admit that it is my first attempt with this lens ... trying to get something small & ... living. When I first came across it, it ran like heck ... as I had startled it by opening the shed and saw it, as it ran ... so I gave it a few minutes to relax and came back, knowing it would probably head right back into the center of its spread web ... only this time, I was armed with the camera, flash and lens. It stayed steady, at only eight inches away.
It was during lunch and I really didn't have a lot of time to fool around with it. So, here it is:
It's a little larger than lifesize ... but, still big enough to scare the crap out of ya. :eek: Heck, the web is at least three-feet tall, as well as wide ... this little gal is hungry, she's put out a big spread! And yeah, it really is that hideous pinkish and orange color, too.
I know, nothing to write DCRP about. LOL :p
