      I think I probably need some more lights (with diffuser boxes). I use 2 LitraTorch cubes with soft box diffusers and a reflector for indoor photography. Sometimes camera flash too. The cubes are good, but get really hot and don't last long before having to be recharged. I think having a 3rd cube would probably help.

      With shiny subjects especially, I struggle with giving enough light to show details in focus, but not have it be a reflective mess, lol. I am learning with each attempt and am lucky to get advice from people like you and Ferdy. <3

      Thanks :). It was so fuzzy. I can still remember what it felt like.

      Definitely very beautiful. I feel the same about the species. It seems possible bc of distribution, but I can't find a single individual identified as Araneus circulissparsus that looks like this.
    9. Are you sure? I see nothing else of exceptional length.
