Haha thanks Reilly. Fortunately my "day job" pays for my hobby I don't think there is huge money to be made in photos of bugs unfortunately. I've made more money out of the odd wedding and my sports shots than my 100,000+ bug shots

I like the 1st one Leigh. The refraction in the water droplets is interesting. What is the blue material, your sweater perhaps?

Took me a minute to see the spider web.

Thanks Terry. For the blue background I used a foam mat (one you kneel on when working in the garden).

How do you get a Jumper to sit still long enough for a shot? Nice photos Leigh....Scotty.

Hi Scotty,
Jumpers are pretty inquisitive and once you get their attention they will often 'pose' for the camera. Some of course will just scurry away but I find most to be fairly cooperative subjects. Probably the biggest problem I have with Jumpers is that quite often they will jump onto the lens or camera for a closer look

Cheers
Leigh
