    wynx, Simon,
    Thanks, the place has quite a number of baby spiders, I saw at least 3 batches of baby spiders crawling all over their web.
    Yellow , red tint? Which picture and how do I correct it?
    Yah lor can spot a few speck of dust on the photo, time to clean again
    The place is a small clearing at the forest fringe and at the water's edge
    Here's the place with Luenny in action

    Richard,
    Nice picts. Too bad I didn't shoot the babies. I felt something missing after looking at my picts. Darn!!

    First few pictures a bit dark, but can be corrected easily. Love the baby spiders. Aiya, why you post my picture?

    Terrapin also considered macro since I shot it with a macro lens.

    The juvenile Argiope spider is nice. Shows the stabilimentum well.

    I once shot a heron with a 100 mm macro.. does that count??

    Haha, I shoot portraits with macro lens. Can see crows feet and nose hair so I think it's quite macro. kekeke

    Nice series guys.
    Richard, your flash looks a little 'Hot' expecially with the beetle. The baby spiders look cool.
    Luenny, bad to hijack thread!I like the white unknown spider shot.

    Sorry-lar Stan. See, got scolding by moderator for hijacking thread already. But it's the same macro trip to the same place what. Besides, he posted my picture there.
