First Jumper captured.....

  1. I'm so happy today, managed to capture my first jump spider! :biggrin:


    original.



    This little bugger is so small, I needed the 60 micro + all 58mm Kenko tubes (it's only approx 2mm long!).


    It must have been a funny sight:
    Me running around a table, trying to get spidy in focus. And as soon as I had him focused the little f**** started sprinting towards the lens.................:eek:..................and me, because of the magnification, missing several heartbeats and jumping back :rolleyes:.

    And the the same game again and again....... But eventually I managed some sharp pics. :Crunk:



    Thanks for looking. C&C appreciated!​
     
  2. Cool shot. 2mm? That would explain why I don't know what to look for if I would have to search one...

    Fantastic shot! You are a brave man shooting spidey with 60mm .:Shocked: I have trouble shooting bugs with my Sigma 70mm, the working distance is far too short for comfort..I really don't want insects or bugs coming towords me :redface:
