The reason I asked about the Habronattus jumping spider is because they are a North American species and not found in this country, as far as I know. Was interested to learn if the shot was taken over the pond or you know of a source in this country.
Thomas Shahan made his name photographing this species and I believe pioneered the stacking layer approach, which gives a sharp image across the whole subject. I was thinking of having a go at this approach but was put off by the difficulty factor. Some thoughts on that would be useful. Great shots by the way.

Thanks all. Jumping spiders are one of my favourite subjects and it all comes down to a matter of patience eventually they will stop long enough to get a couple of shots off. The frustrating thing is when they jump onto the camera

The vast majority of macro photographers dont chill the insects down prefering to shoot them in their natural enviroment as it adds to the challange. With the lens i use i need to be within 4 inches of the subject so their is alot of failed attempts but it is much more rewarding when you do finally get the shot you were after.

Heres a couple more.

i have heard that some people do chill down some insects to keep them still long enough to get a pic, but like most things ethics comes into play here is it right?? is it wrong??

Nice macro mate. How did you manage to track down the jumping spider, real difficult to photograph as they donít settle for long

Marie is one of those women who just comes alive in front of a camera. Very easy job to get a decent photograph of her. They both live in Oz and have been visiting for a couple of weeks. She is a professional dancer and does sometimes get into the studio for promotional work.
I was toying with the idea of organising a shoot but she is on holiday, so had to make do with holiday type photos.
