    Default Lunch to Go. My first reaql attempt at Macro

    Had a walk around the garden this morning, noticed a spider about 4mm long and figured it was worth a shot to tryout my gear

    Not the best but I am happy it is a starting point. Comments welcome

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)

    F22 is probably not worth the effort. I try to stay around f11 for macro. 1/6th is waaaay to slow, even if you had IS. Any movements are exaggerated and this has led to the OOF image you have. Keep trying, and concentrate on keeping shutter speed up
