I love shooting macro shots with lenses that can get extreme close-ups. The lighting today was different than yesterday and I took some shots with my Nikon 1 V1 along with its lens adapter that lets me use my full-size Nikon lenses on the little V1. For some of the shots I used my Nikkor 18-200mm lens. On my V1 that lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 48-540mm. I had to focus manually and as per yesterday, did not use a tripod for any of these photographs.

I also used my Sigma 105mm macro lens which has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 283mm.

For the final shots of the spider in its web I did cheat and added some “rain” via the mist setting on our garden hose! I used my Nikon D90 with the Sigma 105mm marco lens.
