The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Yesterday, when hanging the "open" flag, I spied a tiny green spider on the flagpole holder. I showed it to my wife and she suggested I get a shot of it. Why not? So I dragged the tripod and got the macro lens and extension tube and got this teeny little spider as big as I could. For reference, that top lip is 1/4". Kinda cute, isn't he (she?)

A total of 4 exposures were required to get this much depth of field.

The spider has been identified as a little green orb weaver spider, araneus cingulatus.
