Found this little bugger (baby huntsman)crawling around my herb garden, he was a little camera shy to start with but ended up being big show off once he got used to the camera.

I managed to stop him from moving by keeping him a shadow, once he got exposed to the sun he would start running for shelter.

Taken with my new FZ20, still very new to macro shots so the shots arent exactly spectacular.

Of what size was he?

I think this is a kind of spiderI would not like to see, let alone photograph him. :shock:

I only like the small ones.

He was a little over an inch long from memory, not a very nice looking spider if you ask me.

Got to love those spiders. When I moved to Oz I couldnt believe the size of those spiders. I have seen them around our house but havent built up the courage to try out the macro lenses on them.
Great photos by the way.
