Sorry, but I couldn’t resist to photograph them again. This one was sitting very low on the window and did not move at all. I looked for minutes after the spider and I was considering if and how I will manage to photograph him without tripod. I took a small cardboard box and put my tie under the camera for a little change in height. It worked perfect as long as the spider was sitting in the same position. I took a few photo’s when I noticed the green in the background and at that time the spider started moving around as he was missing the warmth of the sun. That was the end of this photo session.
Do you have any idea what caused the green colour in the background? One thing I can give away: it’s not the Northern light!
Canon 7D; small cardboard box; remote release; MP-E 65 mm (1,5x), 1/125s at F9.0 and ISO100
