Green Spider Eating it’s Prey
Check out my blog at http://www.fotoinusgrobler.com
This photo was taken in a forest in Magoebaskloof in South Africa. I was walking on a pathway in the forest and I almost walked into this spider and its web spanning across the pathway. This green spider was busy eating an insect it just caught.
I had my macro lens already on and ready to shoot. I immediately took a few photos from far and moved closer. This photo was not the closest of the set of photos but I chose this photo as the winner of the set as it was the best in focus.
I took bursts of photos to ensure at least one of them is perfectly in focus. When shooting macro the depth of field is can be very shallow making it difficult to hold the camera still and the subject in focus. Just a slight movement and the focus can shift quite a bit. The light was not the best so I had a relatively small aperture and shallow depth of field.
This photo was taken in December 2014 with a Canon 5D MkIII and TAMRON SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Macro.
Camera Settings: f/4.0, 1/250 seconds and ISO 1600
