Default Hi from Virginia

I've browsed around, some incredible photos here. Looking forward to learning. I mostly shoot macro, some nature, just starting DSLR astrophotography.

Here's a juvenile Black Widow spider, about 2 mm in length.

Thanks, still learning. This little girl was in an employee's mailbox so she caught it and brought it to work so I could photograph it. I put a cup with a small sprig from a bush outside on a table, figuring she would stay on the greenery and make it easier to get close enough to focus with the MP-E65. No such luck, she'd drop on a thread to the table and run for the edge. Luckily I found that breathing on her made her run back to the little branch. Not sure if it was the heat, threat of a large predator, or the garlic in my lunch, but it worked.
