Extension Tubes

by

The following photos were my first experience with extension tubes.  Extension tubes move the lens further away away from the camera sensor which projects a bigger image on the sensor as a result at the cost of some light degradation. 

Very Small Spider

This spider was about the size of a pencil erasure.  But yet I can still see the hairs on the spider.
