Description:
I saw this little baby spider on the wall and tried to get a nice mug shot of him. I don't have a proper macro lens, and the lighting was a bit poor, so I did the best I could with my 55-250 lens. He kept moving so it ended up handheld rather than being on the tripod, so I know it's not perfectly focused, but would love any tips on getting macro shots with a 55-250mm lens and when you have to do it handheld. Also any advice on post-processing - I had to lighten it a bit and I sharpened some to try to compensate for the imperfect focus.

Thanks in advance :)
