So for awhile now I've suffered from spider-face-envy.
It's not something I knew existed before I succumbed.
To be clear, I don't envy spiders their faces, (cute as they are) I envy people who can take photos of spiders' faces with all eight eyes in focus.
I'm having some problems - mainly because I like to take photos in the half light, and that level of macro-photography requires full light and then some.
However, I really do think I'm getting closer.
This was a gorgeous little spider (and I believe her egg sac) along the path at Rainbow Beach. Isn't she gorgeous? Look at her sweet expression, her lovely patterning. Her slight down.
(I may be a little obsessed)
Although as a photo the colours are washed out and not what I want, I feel I'm one step closer to my ultimate aim - the perfectly in-focus spider face, with all eight eyes clear and alert.
