Macro: Colorful little spiders in garden webs

I got a pair of macro extension rings yesterday and had to rush out today and try them, I found two of these little spiders in different places around the yard, these shots are several times life size.

Sony NEX w kit 18-55 on a 10mm macro extension, f14 and 1/200 or so at ISO 6400. I had a bunch of blurry shots but managed to get get a few good ones.

If you don't like spiders don't scroll down...

1. Very cool!

I don't like spiders, but have a lot of webs around my place that I'd like to capture.

2. If you don't like spiders......

don't tell me not to do something. Even though I don't like them.

I especially like the first photo though.

8. lovely!

That must have been such excitement, to see these tiny little characters when you tried out your new toy!

I collect spider/web pictures, and I have some very unusual, colorful ones.

I really like that last one.

BTW, since people are expressing their like or dislike for spiders, I'd like to say that I went once went to a show on spiders at the Smithsonian. It totally changed my view of spiders. As a gardener, they are my among my best friends, and I'm in good company with plenty of ladybugs trolling the aphids among the veggie plants.

My place is full of spiders. Does that give you the creeps? It really isn't a problem. I let them live there, harrassment free. I do clean out the cobwebs, and they find a place to spin their webs that are unobtrusive.
