    Distractions (56K Warning; ~2mb total)

    So I went out to count my flowers today when a little somethin' caught my eye. I decided it was time to break out the ol' camera.

    What a cute little guy! He was maybe 1cm long.



    He agreed to show me his pretty eyes for a while.



    But then apparently the contents of the Sarr pitcher became more interesting.



    Darn! Just exoskeletons left.



    My focus here was spot on. I can't even blame this on these being handheld shots. No, the little guy JUMPED at me right as I took the shot.



    Spiders are such tempermental models! He just turned his back on me and went about his business. I just like the hairs on the head in this one. hehe



    Thank you for bearing with my ridiculous commentary and overly-large pictures. But what's the point of macros if ya don't get the detail, eh?

    Beautifully done Est! I love jumping spiders. For some reason, they always seem more intelligent than other insects and spiders. Constantly trying to figure things out

    Ever wonder how they fit eyeglasses for spiders?? So many darn eyes....
