This tiny jumping spider posed on a sunflower while the wind blew, making it extremely difficult to get a focused shot. I love the curve of the petal he sat on.

Canon EOS 7D with a Canon 50mm macro lens with a 1:1 converter and a 25mm and 12mm extension tubes.

    Beautiful macro, including framing of the spider as well as the shallow dof to create a lovely dreamy feel and blending to the yellow and blue! : )

  • Thank you so much for the lovely comment.

    You nailed the shot! Jumping spiders are pretty cute =)

  • They are pretty cute, huh? I’m always fascinated by the way these tiny creatures seem so aggressive to someone as large as a human. They never back down, they turn their head to follow my movements, they have such huge personalities packed in that tiny little body. Thank you for viewing my work and commenting.
