At last I have a camera with a decent macro lens:
I thought I was doing OK with this shot – it’s a bit noisy (a shortage of light on the kitchen bench) but then I didn’t realise that the camera’s default compression setting was pretty severe. The “1” is one centimetre, and there’s one millimetre between each of the large gradations.
Hopefully by summer, I should know enough about how to work the damn thing. And no spider shall be safe.
