The Spider. . . !



Spider on a Hydrangea Flower




               This    small   spider was sitting on a Hydrangea flower in   my  home  garden, when I captured it.  It was so small,  and its  overall length was only about 1 centimeter! 
          The camera used was not an SLR,  a   compact camera only - Canon A3300 IS, by switching it to the macro mode.

    1. Yes you are right. Canon A 3300IS works well. In my opinion, both slr and compact have its own advantages and disadvantages. Super zoom cameras are also a great choice, I think. They offer a wide range of focal length with a fixed set of lenses (eg Canon Powershot SX40HS)
