We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

Another shot of a baby Garden Jumping Spider (Opisthoncus) from my backyard in Brisbane, Australia. Though small, (easily less than 1cm long) this guy was rather playful, jumping around leaves and hiding from me on their undersides and such.

Shot on the 25th of November 2009 with a Canon 450d and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro (courtesy of Shelley Warbrooke) and 56mm of extension tubes.

Shutter: 1/80th
Aperture: f/18
ISO: 400

  • Thanks Jamie! Appreciate your feedback as always, I have Shell to thank for the loan of the 100mm – much sharper than my 70-300 + tubes setup.

    This is so so awesome, I love it! So sharp and detailed and a great pose, you got him at the perfect angle. He has amazing colouring too. I’m gonna have to borrow those extension tubes one weekend ;)

  • Thanks bub :) Yeah you’re right, thanks to your 100mm. We forgot all about the tubes the other weekend! You can borrow them this weekend perhaps!
