Couldn't believe I have a JP in a plant vessel out on my balcony (5th floor). A dream.
I spotted it various times, yesterday, but couldn't see it today.
It's less than 4mm long.
If I manage to find it again, I ll try to take a shot while it jumps (sometimes they project the forelegs ahead before jumping: I took a shot at 1/60, but I probably have to set flash light to 1/20.000 sec, and shutter speed at 1/2000 or max synchro speed)


JS macros with Raynox DCR250 + diffused or bounced flash (see original file name for this)

#1-3


# 4-6


# 7-9

Thanks to all.

I wanted to precise that #5 is a 100% crop of the 5Mp FZ20 image, though Post processed.
I really can't dare to image that magnification with 250 (though I did more with rev. WA, but that's really too much:http://narmer.zoto.com/img/original/...050704ad68.jpg ).

I spotted it again this morning, and I can barely see the other eyes, while photos show reflections in the main ones, hairs, details on fangs...
It islike a medium size ant long, although with larger face and body.
