wow the focus on this is incredible! I never would have guessed that spiders would be strip[ed up close!

hey, you're back on here :) this is good, but not great. although the focus and exposure are both utterly flawless, it looks a little grainy (what iso did you shoot at?), and the colors and composition aren't extraordinary. the subject, however, is fantastic. i've been trying to find a jumping spider since forever: i don't know if i'm looking in the wrong places or if there just aren't any to be found where i am. how'd you manage to find this guy? and if you get a chance, please check out my newer pictures-- any comment/critique/feedback/whatever would be be great.

I was actually surprised you get them in South Africa. It was night time and dark so the conditions weren't exactly perfect. I would have loved to photograph him on a leaf or something in daylight. So yeah the colors aren't that great. They're tiny things so you have to look carefully :D

I love jumping spiders! (Even though ost people are scared of them). I like how his eyes are telling a whole a new story of their own...or eight! Great work!
