Hey all. Spent some time in my backyard today. To my surprise this handsome black spider was hopping around on my shrub. I love the look of these little guys (though this one wasn't so little). This is the first time I really got a chance to shoot one. He gave me a lot of time and I got a few real nice ones.
The second (brown/white) I happen to see in the grass when I was trying to get a good shot of a Yellow Jacket (didn't happen..lol).

The others are a Fly I can't ID. and a very small (4mm) grasshopper nymph that is on some unplanted flowers in the backyard. I have seen him for a few days now. I plan to watch him as long as I can.

Using the Canon 50mm 2.5 with a +4 Hoya filter. Can't wait to get a 1:1 macro lens soon (I hope).

Thanks for looking. C&C encouraged!
-Bruce

Wonderful series- love the stars in the eyes effect on the jumpers but that natural light grasshopper shot is superb- wonderful colour, light and composition.

Thanks all for the kind comments.

LordV- I guess those stars in the eyes are from the closeup filter, since I never noticed that before with just the lens.

And I agree with you all, I really like how the grasshopper came out too. I will rotate it as Courierman suggested and see how it looks. Although, he was hanging sideways, just as shown here.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

+1. I really LIKE that last shot - lovely pastel colours, and the framing is just perfect imho. And a very cute grasshopper to boot! Print, frame and hang on wall.
