Was at a park to bring my children for cycling....took some pics of some spiders there. Other than the ant mimicking spider, the rest were found on the tree barks. The ant mimicking JS is a first time seeing it!

FZ10+Raynox 250 (6T+Sigma CU for the 2 tailed spider), ISO50, F8, 1/60s, 2 diffuse flash

#1:Ant mimicking Jumping spider
Not a good shot, more of record shot. Very difficult to take as it is moving around like an ant! You can see that it does look like an ant!


#2: JS on tree


#3: Heavy Jumper Portrait


#4: 2 tailed spider just nailed a JS.




FZ10, F4-F4.6, 1/500s

By the way, is this a Little Heron?

Appreciate any views on the shots....compo, etc. Is the BG distracting?

#5:Looking right


#6: Looking left


#7:Balance

Very nice Heron pics, Tchuanye.

Also the JS # 2 (splendid color) and 3 (impressive details)is great.

DCR 250 really gives you (/us) more for the small bugs macros: andusing it at about 6,5 - 7x zoom, it ceases to vignette and gives the same magnification as 6T + 5T (or Sigma CU in your case) but with much more DOF.

Ok Tchuanye, you have passed the test and graduated to birds. If you continue to post such great examples at this rate, we will let you hve a go at the monkeys in the botanical gardens.

Also like the headings, well captured....Fred

The jumper is gorgeous! The Heron photos are excellent. I don't find the background distracting at all. )

Hi Tan,

Another exhibit of your talent! The colour of #2 JS is fantastic, but my favorites are the pictures of thelittle heron! The clarity/sharpness and compositionis unsurpassed! How far where you from the bird? Did you use an added-on telephotolens?

Thanks for sharing,

Emmanuel

Very nice, sharp and detailed Heron.It's the most unsual Heron picture I can remember seeing. Number 5 is my favorite, it just seems to have more to look at and the pose can't be beat. As always, your macro shots are outstanding. Singapore has some strange spiders.

Wow I am impressed, you have "set the bar" pretty high with those pictures. When you say diffused flash, what do you mean...donna

Thanks Narmer!

Is it true? That the Raynox gives more DOF than the 6T/5T combo at a lesser zoom? I had the impression that the Raynox will have less DOF due to is +8! Did a check at Sven's site, and it seems to be so....if thats the case, I can always leave my Raynox on! I switch sometimes for larger bugs....

Thats good news for me...kess hassle!

Nice bugs and bird shot. The bird is a Bittern, part of the same family as herons.
I ment to mention what a good Jumping Spider shot you have also but forgot so the edit.
