    lol interesting pics! Your DOF seems off in them, maybe raise the aperture a bit next time. Nice captures tho :)

    At this magnification I wouldnt expect much more than the eyes to be in focus, and as far as i can see they are just right. Great work. How much extention tubes etc did you use and how did you find so many jumping spiders with prey?

    #4 is pretty great! It's downright comical. Tiny little spidy with a massive beastly catch!

    I can see him dragging that back to the cave: Honey, I'm home from work... For a month!

    Or: Dear, you know that vacation we've been talking about...

    :D

    Thanks Guys!


    Thanks a lot!..well i dont have any macro lenses..i wish i had though!
    The lens i used for these where the Sigma 70-300mm set at Macro.
    No extension tubes used..dont have.
    Well i just walk around in my garden and see some jumpers around..sometimes they have a prey and somtimes they dont have.
