I posted this earlier this mont but accidentally deleted it! (Don't ask how!)
So I thought I'd post it again.

This is a 4-5mm long Pseudophrys lanigera. Thankyou once again Marie (Mariki) for the I.D.

I have somehow lost the exif data again so te shutter and aperture details will be an educated guess!

I hope you like it!

Hi Joey!

I remember that little monster very well, and I believe it's a good idea to re-post it because the picture is really worth it. The details are amazing, although I'm surprised that with f 14 there's not a wider depth of field. But this does not influence on the quality of the picture. More important is the the general expression and atmosphere of the picture which is very strong here.

Kind regards

Hi Joe,
well worth reposting, it's a good shot. Very nice low POV from the front and some fine detail too. The eyes are a bit scary ;o)

Hi Joey, those jumping spiders are incredible, I hardly believe they are such small creatures. You make them jump out of the frame and I hope I never feel their beard tickling my nose! thanks again for a great picture!

Hi Joe,

I loved it the first time and I still do. I think I had written that these were my favorite spiders even though I have only seen them here on TN. The eyes are amazing. Great details, textures, and colors. Glad you reposted it.


Hello Joe, superb focusing, nice excellent detail, good composition and nice light and colours. Another succesful shot. Sorry about tomorrow, have a great day. Hope it doesn't rain for you. I look forward to seeing your great shots when you get back and good luck with your new lens. tfs Rgds Necip

Joey, Your shot is going amazing day by day. This is fantastic and superb eye catch. Great details. Ganesh

Hi Joe, I missed this splendid spider, wonderful macro with amazing details, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Hoey,
jumping spiders are great objects but so difficult to portray. You did very well with this dark-eyed, dark bodied species indeed.
Best regards
