Default Itsy Bitsy Jumping Spider FZ35+LC55+Raynox250

This TINY little jumping spider was hiding deep inside a rose. Tried using the flash but it was blocked by the petals and only showed up as little glints in his eyes.

For all I know, jumping spiders offer very good pose standing still for a long time and those large 'headlight' eyes make it so easy for training your focus. That said, going by the size of stamens, I see this one is really, really tiny! Well done, Saly.

Great detail on the little spider. You did well to get a shot before it moved.
Do you remember the cartoons (from the 1960's ?) of Foo peeking over the fence?

Very cute, Yuki. It must be very tiny, by stacking LC55 + Raynox250 together & still it looks tiny. Thanks for sharing.
