If Susie spider comes out at night, try flash. If you can, set your flash to a very low setting which will work better for close-ups or macros.

You're kidding right>>>? Set my flash to low.... I only know how to lift up the flash... I had no idea it had some sort of a hi-lo setting. That must be in the menu I can never read. I was out there for a bit.... this is the best I got. Little bugger went ***poof*** on me. It was so dark I just ended up aiming the camera in the direction I thought he might be. Sage.... I gave it my all.... gimmie cookies.

That flash seemed fine, but until you find flash settings, you can hang a tissue over the flash to soften the effect. What kind of camera are you using currently?

Just had a thought...if you can't find setting change or don't have one, could you put wax paper over the flash to see if you could diffuse the light. I've never tried this as it just occurred to me now.

Smile. Gee, a tissue sounds much easier than my idea...at least I was on the right track.
