    He was a bit worse for wear and pretty much on his last legs so maybe I should be writing this as an abituary :?

    Certainly seems like he has all his eyes set on you. Glad you managed to post this shot. Excellent.

    Cross between a sheep and a kangaroo .. Thats a wooly jumper...lol

    Super shot
  4. Great shot, I watched one of those stalk and jump a housefly once... unbelievable!
  5. YAY! A Jumper!

    I think when I finally got bored with Odonata I´ll start to shoot these... They are so cute... We have 2 species of them here, so I could get bored with them pretty fast too, except they´re so difficult to photograph, maybe that will keep me going some weeks with them... and now we finally get my point: you did excellent work with it! :biggrin:

    Great shots Alex. Jumpers are so cool.
  7. That is pretty scary and especially when you realize that it can jump. Nice shot.
  8. Thanks all, appreciate the kind words of feedback.

  9. Great one Alex. Haven't done any reverse lens for a few weeks. Bugs don't like me - flowers don't run away on me. I'll stick to the reverse lens on flowers I think....

  10. great shot alex. now that you mention him being down and about ready to go, I had a wolf spider with green eyes too, I think he was in the same boat as this guy - green eyes symbolic of end of life for them mbe eh?
  11. Stunning capture!

    I love these little jumpers, unfortunately they're not easy to capture.

    That's the best I could do so far:
