I was pleased with the results I got when using my macro lens with a white blank background when I took photos of froglets (here). Today I saw a big spider on my window. I carefully grabbed him so as not to hurt or damage it and placed it on the card. You may not want to look if you are arachnophobic since this is a big looking spider. If you look at the bottom of the fangs you can see what I believe to be venom. I was surprised at how hairy the spider actually was.
