I was out on safari today, I made it 6 feet from my back door when I noticed a small yellow blur in a spider web. I got low and was pleased to see a group of about 100 or so tiny spiders with yellow abdomens with a dark patch. I fell into the shooting zone and in what seemed like no time I had shot 197 frames. I used the Olympus E-3 and Sigma 150mm F/2.8 mounted on a Newport linear rail on a manfratto tripod with a cable shutter release. This is a 36 frame Focal stack processed with Zerene Stacker and PSCS5.
The major problem in the image is 100 odd spider staying still during the sequence, I was pretty lucky and most of them did not move but there was some movement resulting in some blurred edges
