I love love love the shallow depth of field it gives on close-ups.
In honor of Halloween I trapped a really hairy, creep, yucky spider in a jar and snapped this little gem.
And no, I didn't have the heart to squish him after looking into all four of his eyes. He almost seemed to have a personality, ya know? After debating over what I should do with him for an hour or so, I finally let him go in the front yard...as far from the house as possible of course.
Right about now I wish I'd taken the effort to plant some flowers in the yard this year. But I didn't so I had to make do with what we've got. Kinda boring though, I know.
I really have no clue what I'm doing with macro photography yet, but I'm having so much fun trying to figure it out.
