The first real test of the macro lens

I recently purchased a Canon EF 100mm 2.8 macro lens that I use for portrait photography, but on a recent camping trip, this gal made an appearance, and she held still long enough for her portrait. I know, those of you with arachnophobia aren’t going to be thrilled with this, but honestly, she was harmless, didn’t try to hitch a ride back to Illinois in the equipment, and I have to say being able to see her eyelashes made her more Charlotte’s Web and less Stephen King. And she didn’t jump. Jumping spiders are not invited to any of my parties!
