Lens: DA L 18-55 / +8 Filter Camera: K20D 
Posted By: old4570, 10-04-2013, 09:12 PM

Another terrible Macro day ( very windy ) ..
And trolling around the Mandarin tree I spotted this brown jumping spider ..
Camera is a K20D + 18-55 Kit lens with a +8 close up filter .. I was running auto focus and in Green mode - ( to see how effective it might be - Auto focus )
Anyhow , very windy ...

Pic3 is where the spider tried to jump on my K20 and failed :

After pulling itself back up to the leaf , I took Pic4 ..
I waited for a lull in the wind and took Pic5 ( in focus ) ...

And then the spider jumped and landed on my K20 ...
So for the next 30 seconds or so the spider explored my camera ..
I kept the camera close to the Mandarin tree where it made its jump from , and after it had finished looking at the K20 , it jumped back in the tree ...
