Went to a park today, and lots of spiders.....till I could not focus on which to take....and end up with few good shots. sigh! Next time have to be more focused!

Evening went to my house nearby to shoot the green crab spider.

FZ10+Raynox 250, F8, 1/60s mostly, ISO50, 2 diffused flash, handheld.

Beetle shot: 6T+Sigma CU+Raynox 250

#1:Yellow-Lined Epeus


#2: On the Web


#3:Green Crab Spider Meal (top view)


#4: Prey is a leafhopper


#5: Close up


#6: Queen Ant


#7: Beetle (6T+Sigma CU+Raynox 250)


#8: Side view


#9: Lousy shot of a really HUGE JS! kept on moving and went deep in the bushes....so no chance to take it. Seems to be a Bavia JS??? Size about 2.5-3cm long.


#10: Opposite size.....micro.....2-3mm
On my skin

Nice shots Tchuanye. Unlucky with the big jumper....its frustrating when you come across something interesting but its too active to photograph.
Love the queen ant, and the green spiders....exceptional sharpness as usual. The tiny jumper on your skin looks as though he`s debating whether to have a nibble or not :-)

Is it coincidental that #1 and #10 set themselves on the perfect background?! Great shots, Tan.

Great shots! Super sharp!!

The green spider is so sharp and detailed it could pass for a piece of glass sculpture

about 3ft. x 3ft. on a museum pedistal!!!

Do you have a picture of your camera set up ?

Thanks Raghu! Background are usually out of my control, and I try to get a clean BG as far as possible!

I always enjoy the green one. And that one lives by your house? Lucky. That huge one is nice too. You can look forward to catching it another time.

Thanks. The crab spider is near my house, while the rest are at a park where I would have to drive there.
