here wolfy wolfy wolfy

We got rain last night and I guess with morning light comes spiders everywhere to clean away the water, as the bask in sun. This is a wolf spider this guy is bigger then a silver dollar, so about 2 inches long and 2 inch wide O.O, he is the 4th largest spider I have seen around. Anyways he was on the AC unit out side so I got up close and took photos, he didnt stay long so I didnt get very many clear good shots cause he kept moving and bathing him self so it was very hard to get a straight on head shot, but I was not really welling to put my hand out there and keep him in place once I saw his fangs lol.

I know from looking up photos that a wolf spider bite can be very painful and make nasty wounds so I played safe with this guy.
Cool macro, love the DoF and the focus is spot on, what lens are you using as the magnification looks fab

@johnnyfrs thanks, I really wish I could get better lens or better at micro shots. I used a DSLR 0.40X lens now if anyone knows where I can get a better one let me know. I cant do stacking on the photo cause well the subject moves lol

I have a 1:1 macro and cannot get this much magnification, you are doing amazing shots with the lens you have.
