Another jumping spider I found while exploring my yard. As with my previous post, I used my Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Lens.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Steven,

Amazingly stimulating! The detail is adds to this terrifying composition, can you imagine this as a large poster on your office wall, you wouldn't get many interuptions, would you?

The frame compliments the overall impact and effect, well done!

Hi Steven,
excellent super macro that looks as dramatic as the subject requires.
Perfect pose, taken from a well decided point of view.
Very well focussed, great details.
With thanks, and best regards,

what a simply stunning picture - it is really excellent and has a fantastic presence. great POV, DOF, lighting, composition and frame.

Wonderfull stuff and I wish it was mine as I suck at macrophotography! With this fast shutterspeed it should have been possible to create a longer dof using f12 f.i. That way the picture would have gained in strength I think. Anyway, well done. Great colors and excellent framing. Well done & TFS!
