Playing with Macro
The body is around 1 - 1.5 inches long, and just to make shooting the photo difficult, she sits with the top of her body facing the window.
In order to get this shot, I used my Canon 7D, Rokinon 85 mm lens at f.8, 31 mm extension tube, and a 600 EX flash on camera. All of this was on a large Manfrotto tripod, wedged in the 10 inch gap between the window and the furthest reaches of the web.
In addition, because the Rokinon is manual focus, I had to be careful as the wind was starting to move her around quite a bit.
This image is almost the full frame of the camera, which means if I wanted to, I could print this to poster size, but that would probably be a bit too scary.
