A few jumping spiders out doing their thing in my Brisbane backyard...

I love the little jumping spiders, especially Mopsus. They're photogenic and often quite cooperative :-)

Thanks! I think Mopsus are my favourite spider species as well! They always seem to be as interested in the camera as I am in photographing them :)

Have you found any ant-mimic jumpers yet? They are another favourite of mine!

Cheers,
Stephen

Not yet. TBH, I haven't done any macro work for almost a year, since I 'discovered' motorcycle trials, which has used up all of my 'photography energy'. Joining this thread has relit my enthusiasm though!

I fancy trying to get some good shots of the Bull Ants that I see in the garden from time to time, so long as I can avoid being attacked. They make good subjects, being so fierce. Point a camera at them and they will immediately swivel around to face you in a threatening manner, much like the jumping spiders. Both have excellent eyesight of course.

Another favourite of mine are the mantids. They don't usually scare easy and strike some great poses!
