Apart from the ladybird that I shot, I also saw this jumping spider. I think its a Banded Phintella (Phintella vittata) Its quite common here and this fella is very shy...always try to hide from the camera.....

Classification: Family Salticidae, Jumping Spiders
Habitat: Grasses and low shrubs in gardens and rural areas.
Female: 4-5 mm.
Male: 3-5 mm.
Distribution: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, India, Southern China.

Taken with FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, Ext flash, F8. ISO was set 100 (forgotten to set back to ISO 50, so some were taken at 100 and some at 50) Various shutter speeds.

#1 The pounce.....(it seems to like this posture...had a few pics of it doing this...)
ExposureTime : 1/320Sec
ISO 100


#2 Another lower view of the Pounce!
ExposureTime : 1/400Sec
ISO 100


#3: Standing Tall!
ExposureTime : 1/250Sec
ISO 50


#4: The stare
ExposureTime : 1/400Sec
ISO 100


#5: The peek
ExposureTime : 1/250Sec
ISO 50

Excellent photos! (as usual) :lol:
Jumping spiders are my favourite spiders and I love their huge frontal eyes! Beuatiful creatures :-)
Yes, tchuanye, is one of the best, but I wouldn't say that he's the best, not because his puctures are bad (only blind one could say something like that), but just because all other people also are taking excellent macro pictures (like stoney79, willow1 and others) and that wouldn't be correct against them to put someone higher than others. I hope you understand my point:?

I vote for #3 and 4 as the best of the lot. That's sure is a cute little guy, and I don't even like spiders:G.
