I like spiders and snakes! The snake du jour is a brown water snake -- non-venomous -- and the spider looks like one of the fishing spiders, but I can't tell for sure. Posted by Hello

Your pics continue to be wonderful. What kind of a zoom factor are you using -- say for the snake photo?

Thanks for the compliment. I used the 3x optical zoom for this one. (I only use the 12x if I can't get close enough for the 3x, as in the bat photo).

My favorite setting, however, is the super macro. Considering my camera is not high-end, I think it gives pretty good results. Of course, if I would read the manual and really learn how to use my camera, my pictures might improve :)

He's not smiling. Did he wake up on the wrong side of the nest this morning?
