Spiders in the Rain Captured by a Sigma Lens

It’s raining so hard in Seattle, the 3rd wettest on record, that an army of spiders moved like a phalanx under the deck roof and out of the wet.


Zooming in a bit, and with a few adjustments in Photoshop, you can see the spider’s mandibles and its web. This frame was taken with the always impressive Sigma Art lens—35 f1.4—attached to a first-gen A7r. A fav camera I kept instead of flipping it on eBay for the latest and greatest. In high contrast light, very impressed with the definition.

See our posts about the Sigma and the MC-11 adapter. It’s a setup we recommend to get the most of your Alpha Series camera. Here’s an even greater zoom of the same frame.

Not trying to be a spider influencer on Instagram or anything so this will conclude my spider series…but just wow, huh?


And, please note that Sigma partners with us to bring you Sony Mirrorless Pro.

My daily shooter is Sony A1 with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
