This one actually made me nervous. When I approached with the flashlight to set up the camera and tripod, the spider wiggled down like a cat getting ready to pounce. With Macro work the lens is very close to the subject, and I manual focus for most of my shots, which means my hand out in front of the camera in the dark only a few inches from the crouching spider.
This was well captured and is super crisp but Goodness gracious I applaud you for having the guts to do it.

Ed, I want to shoot kites some day. Maybe you can be my guide. You get some great shots.

Thanks Dave. Seems like I go months without seeing one, and then I will get lucky and stumble on one that stays in the same area for a while. They don't migrate that I know of, but I seem to see more in fall/winter than other time of year, even though I just caught one hunting the other week. The one above is one I hadn't processed but took it in Feb.

That's like me and coyote. I go weeks without seeing one, or just seeing one slink off in the distance. Then one day I'll get one hunting and they'll hunt in front of me for thirty-minutes. People ask me to show them and I just say, come out day after day and be prepared when it happens, because it may be a long time before you next opportunity.

^^^Beauty, Ed. Aside from the nice view, the pattern is cool. From the lower left corner right up through the center of the pic. Very nicely framed.

Nice one DC. I had a fawn and a mama in my backyard last night. I had to chase them off, it was too dark for photos and they were eating my garden.

Well when the thermometer passed 100 this weekend, I stayed in the AC and went over some files from cooler times. From last Christmas Day, I didn't like the way the contrails cut across this shot, but still an eagle:
