This was one HUGE jumper, probably the close to the largest I've ever seen. Taken at 1.4:1 with my tubes/50mm combo. No cropping. Only got 2 decent images, couldn't get the lighting the way I wanted (remember I use my flash mounted on the hotshoe these days, so it does have limitations). I've processed one image, here, will PP the other image later on today.

I'm not really happy with the lighting, too many hotspots, but alas, unless I really want to cart that crappy flash bracket around and have more bulk and weight, I ain't gonna avoid it.

Thanks guys. It ended up jumping onto the front of my lens, and then jumping off that onto the ground somewhere. It was the usual friendly jumper, not really scared of me etc.
