I found this Phidippus jumping spider wandering around on my living room ceiling. Before releasing it outside I thought Id take a few photos, and considering that its abdomen looked a little small, I gave it a two-week old cricket to eat.

These photos were also a test of a new flash bracket and diffuser Ive put together. I have to say that I am very pleased with the results!

Cheers,
EC

Nice shots. I just picked up the Oly M10 with the 60MM macro, still learning the beast.

Its a great lens. The thing I am still getting used to is the working distance at 1:1 magnification. When shooting I tend to get too close and have to pull back.

I prefer a longer lens (at least 90mm) for most subjects. Framing is more difficult with a longer lens.
