So - here's my friendly little garden spider - and he's pretty small, up close from the underside today.
A-200 about as close as I could get - then cropped a bit more...
Nice shot, Geoff; I really like the way the mottled colored background shows up. Have any idea as to the spider's ID? It looks kind of unusual. BTW, doesn't the C740 have a super-macro mode? I used to get some great macro shots with my 755.
