It looks menacing, but I guess it's not that aggressive since you can hold it? #2 is a really nice shot.

I have finally got myself a Macro lens and am having too much fun with it!

Looks good - how big is it?

Playing with macro on a D7000 at 1:1 and 100% crops by my calculations can give around 50x magnification on standard screens (excluding Apples retina models).

It looks menacing, but I guess it's not that aggressive since you can hold it? #2 is a really nice shot.

Most bugs look scary when you get them up close - but also fascinating. Anything I catch crawling around my house has to pose for a photo shoot before being cast out into the garden.

Looks related to a tarantula. Good shot
