It's funny how I always run across jumping spiders when I don't have my gear, but finally last night the planets aligned properly, and I was able to do just that.

I know the flash is way to over apparent, but I think it actually works well with the shallow DoF in the picture.

Look at the hairs on its head! So cute!

I should have a flash bracket and sync cable by the end of next week. Can't wait to share the results!

Nice one. I have never seen a white one. If you get the chance, catch a live fly and feed it to him. If you move slow, their curiosity will let them come up to it and take it from your fingers. :)

Thanks jadrock! I know the light is harsh, and it's something I'm working on. I appreciate the honesty.

Canonloader, I'll try that some time... Might freak me out.
