  1. Absolutely stunning image!

    The EXIF is interesting. The Sigma lens is a macro lens, which you then extend? Does that offer more than 1:1 magnification? Also, how do you manage to stack shots with a moving subject like this?

    1. Thank you :) Posted 5 years ago
  3. With an extender you have 2:1 – This is often easier than shoot with the MP-E 65!
    This spider has remained sitting quietly and there was absolutely no wind. But you have to work fast :)

''Misumena vatia'' is a species of crab spider with holarctic distribution. In North America, where it is the largest and best-known flower spider, it is called the goldenrod crab spider or flower spider, because it is commonly found hunting in goldenrod sprays in the autumn. Young males in the early summer may be quite small and easily overlooked, but females can grow up to 10 mm ; males reach 5 mm at most.
