 Post subject: Green jumper spider eggs
PostPosted: Wed Feb 16, 2011 11:21 pm 
Today found this protective jumper and the eggs below a nice mount of silk that at same time help with defence and allow the mother to walk above the eggs without any harm.

All photos with Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 macro @ 1.5x magnification. 580 EX II flash bracket mounted.

From Gmazza's macro photography blog

At this angle the eggs are almost absent from the image but it illustrate how she is capable to walk above the silk without damaging them.

This angle is the best one to avoid the silk web and capture the eggs

I like the green translucent colour and the reflection in its eyes.

Thanks folks !

@ KSK, for using the MP-E 65mm is better a previous training with macrophotography and high magnification focusing, with this training the results would be good.
