Hi fellas! Its been a quite awhile since I took some pics.....poor weather, busy at work, but manage to squeeze 1 hr to shoot today just below my block. Guess was abit rusty as many shots turned out poor. Saw some spiders, ...not sure which Jumping spider species though. Took a brown crab spider too.

Appreciate any comments!

Taken with FZ10+6T+Sigma Close Up filters, Ext bounce flash, ISO 50, F8.0 various shutter speed

#5: Spider thread

This is a poor shot, but like to post here as you can see the spider thread at the rear being inserted into the air....it does this in the hope that the thread will be blown by the wind, and the other end will hook up to another pt among the bushes....once it connects.....it will climb across the thread to the new leaf! Saw that happening...I mean I did not see where the thread landed, but saw it crawl across the thread to another leaf....very interesting.

They are very good I use the 4T with my Fz10 and 30. I believe it is a winning combination. The quality is so good that I can crop 40% and get the same results. Backing off on the zoomseem to give more DOF this was done at



Aperture: [/b]
f/5.2
ISO: [/b]
100
Focal Length: [/b]
56.1mm (337mm 35mm)
Exposure Time: [/b]
0.004s (10/2500)

Thanks for your excellent pictures throughout the year, tchuanye!
Your expose is so inspiring, but it will be difficult to follow your footsteps....

I like these jumping spiders, one of them stays in my home this winter!
The third picture shows even all 4 eyes of one side - the last one on the back is very small.

Best wishes (I guess there is no real christmas in asia?)

Thanks lovelife! Nice spider shot. Zoomed out and still so large! Must be a BIG spider!

I am not so sure abt the DOF at wider setting though. I guess at whatever zoom, F8 will give the highest DOF right?

Anyway, have a blessed year!

Thanks Sven! and thaks for directing me to the link from doublechin! don't know him but great spider shots too!

Well, in asia, pp do celebrate Christmas...though not a white one:lol:. Its a public holiday on Monday too cause 25Dec is on a Sunday. Pp do by some fake christmas tree, decorate it, and buy gifts for each other...and lots of shooping done during this festive season. Our main shopping area is also decorated with lots fo christmas lighting too! Well, at least, thats whats done in Singapore.
