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!
