I love using my camera to explore nature! You can find my photography portfolio here. If you're looking for just (all) of the spider photos, those are here. (I also have a Flickr with some of my older photos, but I am in the process of moving hostings).
For macro photography, I use a Nikon D7500 body, a set of Kenko extension tubes, and either a Nikon 18-55mm or 50-200mm lens. I light my shots with a NEEWER Speedlite 750ii, and am currently using this diffuser from B&H. For larger subjects, I use a Tamron 16-300mm telephoto.
If you are interested in macro photography, but are on a budget, there are very decent clip-on macro lenses for your smartphone available on Amazon. Search "clip-on macro lens" - usually they are ~15$ dollars.
I am also learning natural history-style illustration. Currently, I'm working with pen (PaperMate InkJoy 300) on paper.
