    So this is my first attempt at shooting a jumping spider and it was actualy pretty fun, one sec on the leaf next jumping at my face lol fun little critters. Anyways I want brutal honest C&C I'm not 100% satisfied with the way they come out but I think there might be something there please let me know.

    As creepy and hairy as that little guy is, I love #3! The front/eyes are very sharp, and it looks like he's just about to spring at you! ick! Yet great..

    I love the first two, especially the one of him hanging upside down. It looks like he's hiding. I never thought I would use the word "cute" to describe a spider. The second two are pretty neat, but I wish you could have gotten more of the back half of him in focus. I noticed on the fourth one that your depth of field is focused a little far in front of him.

    You probably used up a lot of patience getting those low DOF shots, but I have to be honest and say I'm not so keen on them. Just a little TOO low, I'd like to see the entire subject in focus since it's so small.
