These spider photos were taken in their natural environment. The extreme close-ups were taken with a Sigma f2.8 105mm macro lens with varying lengths of extension tubes.

For me, there is a pleasure in capturing a crisp, sharp image of something I cannot see clearly with my own bare eyes. And there is, to my way of thinking, a kind of beauty in the details revealed about these small creatures that seem so alien to us. See the close-up photos of spiders and spider faces using the Slideshow below.

If you're interested in macro photography and would like to try this type of photography, I've written a Beginner's Guide to Macro Photography. See all TheWorldinLight has to offer at Destinations and Topics.
