Critter shots from the East Coast Star Party in Coinjock, NC

All photos were taken with my Canon 5d Mark II, Canom mp-e 65mm f/2.8 lens, and the mt-24ex twin flashes, heavily diffused.


1. This is a female Salticid of some sort, not sure of the species exactly. She was incredibly shy, it took 20 minutes of patiently waiting to snap this photo. Every time I moved, she would duck back in her little house. I ended up setting my tripod right in front of it, setting the focus, and using a remote trigger to capture this photo.




2. found one tree in particular which was covered in life. Ants, flies, spiders, critters everywhere. One unique event was happening, something I have never seen before. I have seen jumping spiders catch and eat ants, but never the opposite. A large group of ants were going in and out of a hole in this tree, many carrying food. This one was carrying a still alive jumping spider.

10. This photo below is of a ladybug larva (black thing on the right) eating another insect. Iíve seen ladybug larvae plenty of times, but never with prey.

Wonderful series.
Think your ant is actually a wasp.
