I have the same lens and bellows, and would like to do some of this myself.
I've only played with the lens so far on my D70 (without the bellows) and
it's too bad you couldn't get a bit more depth of field. Otherwise, very
nice work, and very nice detail. I'm on the lookout for that "perfect"
spider shot. The one where the spider is just sitting in the middle of a
perfect web with a few drops of dew on it.

Curious if these are RAW images?

I would hazzard the guess that 99% of spider web shots with "dew" had
the dew applied with a spray bottle. That's not criticism.

Get that web in cross light with a dark background and you are cooking.

Cheers,
Alan.

WARNING:

D70 of course does not like dust.
Bellows can get full of dust.
take the time to really clean it.

I keep mine in a ziplock baggie.
same for extension rings.

Actually, for those dewy shots, all you have to do is get up at the
crack of dawn after any windless starry night, get to the nearest
field, and you'll find all the dewy webs you could ask for. Ken

If you decide to use flash, be sure to remove that giant lens shade
