    Really nice shots.
    I have a Canon EOS. From what I could find on info. My charger won't charge the aftermarket batteries. So I would have to buy a new charger with it.
    But they have pretty good prices. If you've had success with them, I think I might get some.

    Appreciated :)

    Can you be more specific as to which EOS body you have? FWIW I've been using OEM chargers for years with third party batteries (BP511) sold by Diamondback--they are even outlasting my OEM batts. Go figure.

    Yea, the 300D utilizes BP511's. You should be fine with the charger you currently have.

    those are some amazing shots - It makes me itch to get my hands on a decent manual focus digital camera with a good macro lens. (any suggestions?) I love jumping spiders. Anyone read about Bagheera kiplingii the mostly vegetarian spider?

    I thought at first that you were pulling a fast one!
    Since Bagheera is the name of the panther in Kipling's The Jungle Book!

    Thank you, Jen--if you enjoy it enough you should really look into investing in a nice macro lens and DSLR, they are a blast. Personally I shoot Canon and my primary macro rig consists of a 1DIII+Sigma 150mm macro and usually a combination of extension tubes and a 1.4x teleconverter. It can be seen here. This can get me up to magnifications right around 2.3x life size or 2.3:1. That said there are a lot of quality macro lenses out there to choose from...it's tough to go wrong. Some notable Canon and third part macros are the Canon 100, 100L and EF-S 60 and MP-E 65 (which can deliver 1-5x magnification), Tamron's 60, 90 and 180 and Sigma's 105, 150 and 180.

    Speaking of creepy crawlies... I just inhaled a mouthful of Peruvian pink rump hairs.

    I got a bunch of widow pictures. :) Took a few of the new little similis, too. You guys are just going to have to wait until I get my computer back, though.

    Apparently, the first people to describe it were fans of Kipling.


    I had (still have) a Canon AE-1 Program, but no good macro lenses, and once digital hit, I got tired of film... I still have it, just don't use it, but I am a fan of Canon. There is a good camera shop in the next town over. I'm there frequently enough. I have a birthday coming up - I know just what to ask for, lol. If not the camera, gift certificates to that place. I'm sure he can order anything he does not have in stock! And I get the added bonus of supporting a small local business.

    I spend a TON of time outdoors when the weather is fine for it (today is gorgeous) and will shoot anything that holds still long enough. My little point-and-click Nikon goes with me every hike.

    Crocdoc, which species of orb weaver is that? they look a bit like the Nephila clavipes we have here in the states. I am assuming that is a local Australian spider?

    Anyone see the pictures a few years back of a spider in Australia eating a bird?
