These were taken near my house today. First time I saw the Ant-Mimicking Jumping Spider, and some more below my house! At first I thought it was a spider with something in the mouth...but nope it was Ant-Mimicking Jumping Spider! Very hard to take this fella as it was always on the move, and only had a few moments where it stayed put. Likes to hide undeneath the leaf too!
Well, also took pics of the Heavy jumper again, a mantis and a white hopper!

Taken with FZ10+Nikon 6T+Sigma CU, Ext bounce flash, ISO 50, F8.0 and various speeds


#1: Ant-Mimicking Jumping Spider
Really looks like a duck...

#6: Sad Mantis
Love the sad look on this fella....

CY, you continue to amaze me. the clarity and detail of your shots is stunning, and you always manage to get your subjects to pose so perfectly - or at least hold still - for you! have you ever considered publishing one of those "coffee table" photo books of your work? i have no doubt it'd sell!

Tchuanye, Excellent pictures! I've never seen or heard of a "Ant-Mimicking Jumping Spider", are they only found in that part of the world? Jim

Thanks Squirl! Well, I have to maneuvore myself to a position to get the shot...and SOMETIMES, they just stay still for that moment...and I just manage to capture it....sometimes I succeed sometimes not....those you see are those I succeed....:lol:
