Was at Redang (an Island off Malaysia) for a short holiday with my wife and kids. While they rested, went around the resort, and spotted this HUGE JS crawling up the wall as the gardener was watering the surrounding plants. Its really huge and using my flash head as scale, its length is about 3.5cm long.

Anyway, here are the pics. Did not use the Raynox as I did not want to get too close. Used the 6T and Sigma CU instead...19cm safety distance.

FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, F8, various speeds, 2 diffuse flash, handheld or supported.

#1: Face on. 1/25s, supported on railing, No flash.



#2: Another front shot
1/160s, 2 diffuse flash


#3: You Stink!
1/25s, supported railing, no flash


#4: Hairy legs
1/25s



#5: Water at my eyes
1/50s



For Scale



#6: This is NOT Mine.....
1/60s


#7: Another view...less the tic tac
1/100s

I dont blame you wanting to keep your distance from the jumper Tan, its huge!!:shock:

Great set of pics, love the colours on the last 2, and all perfectly sharp, excellent.

Hi TC

Great shots as always - the first being impressive, which is exactly what I thought when I saw the size of the wee beastie. If it was me I 'd have been running away rather than snapping away.

Cheers

:O :?

Great shots, that is huge for a jumping spider! I probably would have tried for a closeup ofan eye with 10+ diopters, but jumping spiders dont scare me the way they do some people.

Our master of the snakes needs a "safety distance"??

Excellent captures with and without tactics and tictacs.

Very nice series Tan. Love the composition, colours and sharpness of 6 and 7.
