    Day 1 - I find this little jumper scurrying all over the branches and attempt my best at getting decent shots even though he won't stop moving. I manage some great shots, but not my favorite "poses".

    Day 2 - I find the same guy about 20 feet from the first spot....having a bit of a snack...a moth that is a good 3-4 times his size. Again he gives me not such great angles, but I managed with what he gave me.

    I'd be over the moon with any of these! That focus and sharpness and detail!
    And the colour of the background on top!!! :D
    Wonderful!

    Nice series. Thats a really cool jumper. He must have been really hungry the first day. His head is twice the size of his abdomen!

    Thank you Corrina, I really appreciate it.


    Thank you. Didn't notice it until you mentioned it, but yeah, his abdomen is really small in the shots from the first day. I'd say the moth is a well earned meal.

    It looks like you are apprenticing for NAT GEO!

    Nice series of photos following the spider. I really like the commentary as well, Thanks

    Exif data should be intact on all of them...not positive, but think it was 1/200th, f/13, ISO200, flash on manual somewhere in the 1/4 range give or take.

    Thanks...Nat Geo would be awesome...though I'm sure that's a lot of photographer's dreams.

    Thank you. I agree...one of the prettier jumpers I've shot.
