We hap­pened upon some meadow this­tle in a field. Ross told me that there might be crab spi­ders hid­ing amongst the flow­ers, and be­fore long we found one cling­ing to the un­der­side of a this­tle. Be­cause the spi­der wasn’t go­ing any­where fast – un­like the dam­sel­flies – I could set up my tri­pod. Up close the depth of field was very nar­row, so I upped my aper­ture to f/16, which gave me a shut­ter speed of 1/250 sec. My test shot was slightly dark, so I di­alled in a stop of pos­i­tive ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion to lighten it up.
