Gotta love the local wildlife. For this spider photo I got in real close with my macro lens on my camera in one hand and my flash with a softbox in the other. I used the off-camera flash at 1/4 power and the on-camera flash also at 1/4 power to provide some fill in the shadows.
The rubber lens hood I bought at last weekend's aquarium shoot came in handy to block the light from the softbox going directly into the lens.
This is SOOC except for a slight crop.
