    Those are fantastic, I know just how difficult those little bugs err spiders are to shoot, if they are the specieis i think they are they are also very very small, females no more than about 4-5mm long making them even harder. I wouldnt want to try it in the feild without a large lunch bag, a comfortable carpet to lie on and i am ashamed to admit it a long cigar. what did you use, what was hard and what was easier than expected?

    Thanks all. Sorry mentos :heart:

    tpe...these were shot with the Sigma 150mm macro and 2X TC. I used the 2X and extension tubes for #6, but I don't remember which tubes? The hardest thing about these little guys, is that every time I get down there, they turn their back to me. I've got tons of wasted shots of their back sides :confused:

    Normally, if I find one jumper, there's more in the area if I just be patient and wait. There's been times where I've just laid in the grass...waiting. You'd definitely have time to smoke that cigar ;)

    Fantastic shots...I can't imagine shooting such small critters...who probably move around a lot.

    Also...I can't wait until I evolve and grow a few more eyes...that will be cool.
