Managed to capture a nice little series of this tiny female Jumpspider (Marp issa muscosa). The Jumping Spiders are a very interesting species. They even have Eyes which can zoom and shift! :biggrin: See here for more details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumping_spider That's how I found my model, hanging upside down under a lamp on my terrace. "Upside Down" (Nikon D300 105VR+1.4TC 1/60s f/16.0 at 150.0mm iso200 Flash) The Jump Spiders are very brave and stand their ground when approaching them or even jump to attack. So I easily managed to "invite" her into my studio. Where she got an appropriate payment, a stunned fly. She took it immediately... "Deadly Hug" (Nikon D300 105VR+1.4TC 1/60s f/16.0 at 150.0mm iso200 Flash) After hugging it from all possible angles, the "slurping" began... "Little Snack" (Nikon D300 105VR+36mm Extension tube 1/60s f/16.0 at 105.0mm iso200 Flash) ...like a lovely couple dancing... "Dance of Death" (Nikon D300 105VR+36mm Extension tube 1/60s f/16.0 at 105.0mm iso200 Flash) Here's the obligatory after meal portrait... "After Meal Portrait" (Nikon D300 105VR+36mm Extension tube 1/60s f/16.0 at 105.0mm iso200 Flash) I returned her to her home. I guess we both where happy, she's got her Snack and I got my Pictures BTW: The male Version looks like this: "The Boxer" (Nikon D300 105VR+1.4TC 1/60s f/32.0 at 150.0mm iso200 Flash) Thanks for enduring this boring story, you made it to the end! :wink: Feedback very welcome!
