Not sure if always posting abt Jumping spiders will bore you, but somehow, I like to take them. Esp those not so common ones.

Well here are the pics. The only ID I know of the JS here is the fighting Spider.

And specially for Narmer, I have done up 4 shots with borders as per request.

FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, ISO50, F8, 1/100s - 1/125s, Ext bounce flash
A610+50mm F1.7 reverse lens,, ISO 50, F8, 160s, EXT OB flash

#1: Unknown JS. (FZ10)
This fella, the palpi (the 2 frt thing infront the mouth) is always moving so fast, I tend to get motion blur on it.

#2: Peeking (FZ10)

#3: Under leaf (FZ10)

#4: Fighting Spider (FZ10)

#5: Small JS (A610)

#6: Whats in a JS head???? (A610)

#7: For ID purposes, the rear pattern for the first JS

A nice series always - no's 5,6 & 7 are just right. Good composition, spot on lighting and tack sharp.

Anyone who gets bored with your Jumping Spider shots has problems.

Like a lot of people, I like spiders to be OUT THERE but am fascinated with your work. Keep posting and I guess we will keep looking...Fred

Just GORGEOUS macro workas always TC. That 5th shot is perfect for the ratio, what a shot !!!:shock::cool:

Thanks Tchuanye.

Very nice: I always think you won't be able to go on with astonishing shots, but indeed you are so skillful and nature is so various...

5,6,7 for me too.

I'll exchange the favour as soon as possible, for I managed to shot a relatively big (more than the nail of athumb) red JS, both with 6T + 5T and with reversed macro.
But that's another (also sad) story...


PS I agree with you: Salticidae are really cutie beings, more than Lynx, Crab, argiope and other aracnidae...

see my post about the wasp, great as always. I have come to expect great photos in the macro world. I expect you will soon be with the microscopic world.
