Great shots. Was this done straight out of the DFA 100 or did you throw a tube on it? Very narrow depth of field for F16...makes it tricky to takes shots as good as those.

Such an intriguing spider.#2 is my fave given it's taken at the spider's head level - higher value for its danger factor.
You did well with these Heinrich.
Thanks for sharing.

Eeesh! I hope one of these things doesn't think that I'm dinner sometime, I'm not sure I can get to my can of raid fast enough.

Actually, I think that this guy is really cute though, actually, I never thought that I would say that about a spider, but your photos are so bright and happy it's just hard not to like them.

Thank you, no tubes, just the DFA at closest focus distance and cropped about 60%. The bodylenght of these little jumpers is only about 5 mm.

Thank you and I wouldn't worry too much of being dinner. Your can of Raid wouldn't do much good either, by the time you press the button they'd be gone.

Take care.

Very neat looking shot, but it always gives me the creeps when I see the eyes on these spiders. However, your photo shows off these eyes very well as the photo is very sharp and it actually looks like he was posing for you.

Thanks for sharing,

Thank you Cory for the kind words, they are only small around 5mm body lenght but posing? I only wish they would

Take care,

Thank you Jer, right now I have too many "must do" things going so getting away from it for an hour and doing something that I really like doing is relaxing.

Take care,
