My new friend Rocky
I found this tiny jumping spider living on my patio furniture in my yard. Itty-bitty thing with the cutest face, I've named him Rocky because he kept putting up his dukes at me! Posted a couple more over in the Close-up Section. (FZ35+LC55+Raynox250)

#1 A bit of mauve for banksy..;)



#4 Even did a little dance for me...

#5 Badly needing a shave

Good series Saly, DOF in last shot is amazing for the stack

Saly, like Square said, great work with the stack. The last one shows how it should be done.

Thanks everyone! I prefer to catch them on greenery for aesthetic reasons, but oh well. Lighting was tricky, it was under a very bright sun so I used a small mirror to reflect the sun from the side on him to try to minimize dark shadowing.

You are lucky he stood still long enough to get these shots.
I chased one around our wheelie bin for 30 minutes - every time I got focused, he would turn his butt to face me :D
