Spider on glass (Free Stock Photo)

Spider on my back door. Not posed.

 

Made use of Sony A77 articulated LCD screen to peek around the sliding door and get this shot.

 

The lens was the cheap, but awesome SAL35F18.

 

I used ISO 50 + raw mode. To get the focus, I manually focused the lens as close as possible, then moved the camera until I got the shot. Focus peeking + pixel zooming helped me get the eyes in focus.

 

The depth of field is crazy narrow, so it helped that this jumping spider posed held still for the shot.
