    Had the privilege of taking some serious herpers and gogga guys to the north coast, and their macro setups are crazy with those 'predator like flash setups' in the face of the creatures, but wow the results, I tried a few with the longer lens between their setups from further away so not real macros but some cool things...

    Nice shots, Peter. If any of these things were the same size as a human being, I would simply drop dead on the spot.

    What on earth are those things with multi-eyes in pics 2 & 4? Scary critters.

    Thanks Eric

    Those are both spiders. Spiders have both 8 eyes and 8 legs.

    The green one is pretty small, as can be seen from the structure of the ripstop canvas bag it is standing on.

    The fourth was a pretty senior rain spider.

    The process takes about 2 hrs and leaves the T vulnerable for another day or so. Those white fangs are soft and useless and having an exoskeleton the t is soft and much like a car with dropped suspension for a day or two untill the legs have hardened and the hydraulics are up to scratch again

    About 3 - 5 times per season in the warmer months of the year. Some species will moult quicker than others and males reach maturity in 2-5 years where females can live for more than 30 years in captivity

    The male will spin a moulting mat soon after his final moult and deposit a drop of sperm on it, This is put in to syringe like organs on his pedipalps and that is used to transfer it to the females genital openings on the bottom of her abdomen. after final molt the male has two hooks on his front pair of legs that is used to hold the female's fangs so she can not bite him, he gets hold of her fangs and lifts her up to an upright position. This not only gives him access to her genital openings but also keeps those fangs out of commission.
    If not eaten a male will spin 3 moulting mats before dying, they are pretty good at keeping out of harms way

    Unlike other spiders Tarantulas are not as easy to sex, in other smaller spiders like the rain spider one can easily distinguish the males by their "boxing glove" pedipalps. Tarantulas usually look much the same exept after final moult when the hooks on the front legs can be seen. One can look at a molt and see if there is two purse like slits on the lower front of the abdomen but this is not as easy as it sounds.

    The T in the photos is a young Salmon pink bird eater and will be as big as a dinner plate when mature, it is the second largest T in the world. These babies are not very venomous and the venom is said to have only mild effects on humans and is claimed to have therapeutic potential.
    They are not very aggressive and would only bite if provoked with 25mm fangs it is just as well

    Tarantulas do however have another weapon up their sleeve, they have barbed hair in their backs that they can fling with their hind legs and the Salmon pink has the worst type that can cause a nasty rash on your skin and even blindness if gotten in the eyes.

    Nice composition.
    Macro is exactly that. Small things - bugs, stuff, flowers, and so forth.
    Micro is the stuff that's smaller than Macro

    So Riaan you have been holding out on us hahaha, I tried a Panagor slide duplicator (m42 mount) on my d610 with what I feel incredible results. Okay so no f to adjust and the lens keeps falling off with my mount and I cant shoot anything moving (the worm example) but the magnification is almost micro if you get lucky (dead moth). Problem is you have to be to close hahaha and the subject tends to climb into the lens...
