Hi Sergio!
Hey, i think this should be a today's post to me! Wonderful shot with extra rarely seen scene! Superb details, colours, pov, lighting etc,:-) i wonder where is poor spider's legs and how could lose them? and i'm also curious about how did you connect the zenit 50 mm to the objective of the a 620!
Thank you for this great post, surely a favourite one!

Hello Sergio,
That's really a nice shot, showing a very interesting phenomenon. Usually there are spiders killing insects, but some hymenopterans paralize spiders and use them as food suplly for their larvae.
Very good details, colours and DOF. Effective POV.

wait now i understand ..the canon doesnt have a focal plane shutter...so synch isnt a problem and i now suspect you have an adaptor to fit the zenit onto the canon..
this is remarkeable use of some bits and pieces on a digicam...
can you post a pic of the combination...

saw your explanation to crit #1..i dont understand your language but get the idea its glued on
you are a genius!

Hi Sergio,
This is a beautiful and quality macro shot.
I like the title too.
I using same 55mm Zenit lense for macro, but I have been many problems with focus...


What an amazing picture! Wasps are sure nasty looking. Good thing they are small.
