Lachesilla yucateca - female

Lachesilla yucateca - Female
San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, USA
June 16, 2018
Size: 1.6 mm
Took this shot at 5X with my MP-E 65 mm lens, Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera (f13). While in the collection vial with a blade of grass she laid an egg and made a silken refuge. I was able to measure her body length while alive in the vial. I'll release her back to her dead grass habitat. For a creature this small I can't seem to get the focus I'd like. Any advice?
