Thanks guys for the comments, I must admit these are my favourite macro's I’ve done so far.
This little guy was very shy at first hence picture 2, but then he got used to me flashing away and even popped his head up to look into the lens (hence picture 3).

Heh...great pictures there angelo!

They are all good, but the third one especially so. I agree with smiles77, you've managed to produce a picture that makes this li'l critter look cute and friendly and that is quite a feat. There are tons of jumping spider pics on flickr and I've seen hundreds - but none that are quite so darn nice as the third one! lol

Cheers :-)

"A cute and friendly spider!" never happen :lol: :lol:

My cat has managed to keep out flat spider free.

Great shots there. Macro is brilliant, we are given the chance to see the beauty that the eye cannot detect.

Cheers Ormina

That's amazing, you were able to make a spider look cute? i've never in my life thought of spiders as cute and have never seen a cute picture of them haha well done these pictures are great. I even had to e-mail a link to this page to my fiancee because i can't quite believe i've seen a cute spider.

Is this spider a pet? or just a wild one you found?

Hi angelo,


Can you please provide more info about the 3rd picture? cam/lens/focal-distance ... and how you got that nice angle?

I really loved the pics. Especially the third :!:

I like #3 quite a lot :)

The other two ain't bad, just that the spider's(not your fault - the spider's gene's fault) colour didn't stand out very much from the background.

I've seen these spiders in macro shots before. They always make me smile :)

Cool shots
