It's been a while since my last post here.
Good to see that all macroholics here are doing really fine. Smile

Here's a Jumping Spider image taken from my last trip to the Phils.

Cheers!

Beautiful result from cleverly designed and basic means! My own attempts with reversed lenses have not quite reached that standard, but recently I 'confronted' a jumping spider and found myself (well, my lens) reflected in all its eyes. So my question is: what are the 2 minor specs of light? The big rectangle obviously is the flash as described in you very interesting article. But there are 2 more small dots.

Thanks for the image and the article. Food for thought.

Cheers, Paul

My limited experience with jumping spiders is that they are quite curious, and after a couple of shots they jump on the lens (when working with reversed lens setup at a distance of about 2cm) Smile

Sorry for the late reply...
Thanks for the comments! Smile

Danny: Graeme, not Graham. Razz He's doing fine at NPS.

Paul: good question, though I'm not really sure where that two small catchlight came from. It could be a reflection from somewhere.

Cheers!

congrats sgt pepper. i knew it was a good shot the first time i saw it. subsequently, i did take a few shots myself of a similar spider with an almost similar prey, but never felt inclined to have it posted here because your image was superior to those i had taken. all the best.
