My first bug macro of 2015?

A handheld stack of 10 images. This is cropped from the central 1/2 of the frame. I think I might see a stacking error on one of the antennae but it was rather windy today!

Camera Model: ILCA-77M2 | Lens: Tamron SP AF 90mm F2.8 Di Macro | Aperture: f/4.5 | Exposure Time: 0.001 sec (1/1600) | ISO: 200

Lovely macro shots mikey2000 and Lagrimon. @koolbeep you did nail the focus on the eyes in the first shot. I would like to see deeper DoF, is it possible to stop down or focus stack or is the spider to fast? It looks a bit scary.

I found a crab spider recently.   They can apparently change colour over a few days to match their environment. This chap appeared to be rather aggressive and is sporting a rather nasty head wound from some kind of fight. I went to town with the PP to make is seem a little more 'fantastic'

Very much alive but having seen the pics on my full screen, I think it may be a sort of zombie spider crab. I'm not normally a huge fan of spiders but this little beasty was grimly fascinating

I was wondering because its head is almost split in 2.
Great focus in #1!

I was grimly fascinated as I've never seen a bug with a wound. I didn't even know that small insects and spiders have blood as such, I always assumed they didn't need a cardiovascular system and survived by diffusion and osmosis. Either way, this beastie didn't seem at all incapacitated

How small is small?
Well, if it's bigger than 23x16mm, then it is huge!
