I was messing around in the basement the other day and came across this
spider in the washroom. Well, just had to grab the camera and see if Nikon's macro
feature is as good as 'they' say :) This little guy was about an inch long from leg to leg. Anyways, I know it's got absolutely nothing to do with Linux or Ubuntu but it made for a great wallpaper and the colors were almost perfect. If anyone wants a copy, drop me a line. So far only at 1280 x 1024 but others can be made

All the best

All I can say is I WANT YOUR CAMERA

But I'm not a fan of spiders ;)

It wasn't an easy shot! The little bugger didn't want to sit still long enough for me to get a couple of inches away from him :) The camera is a 2 year old Nikon Coolpix 4500. Best toy I ever conned my wife into letting me buy \\:D/

Hi,

What are you doing with an Ubuntu logo embossed on your bathroom wall?

Looks awesome!

God! I only wish I could afford that Canon! 16.7 mp vs 4.3....there's a difference :)
Considering the spider is only ony about 1.5 inches long and it wasn't set to full res, it's pretty good :) Yep....getting American Standard to emboss Ubuntu on the sink was a chore :razz:

Coolpix 4500 as well :D I've got about 7000+ pictures taken with this camera and I love it.

Thats the most amazing macro shot I've seen! The colours are all Ubuntu too :)
I love seeing good quality photographs being used for wallpapers

Thanks for sharing it
