Macro shot of a small jumping spider sitting on a leaf on a bush in my backyard. I completely stuffed up this shot, way overexposed, wrong ISO but managed to recover the details in ACR. I cleaned up a lot of the noise in post-processing and the end image doesn't look too bad, but it really makes me want to try this again thinking the process through to get the right setup, using a tripod and cable release and some kind of snoot setup to direct and diffuse the speedlight output.
I need to be careful with this though, as I can see these tiny beast shots getting kind of addictive.

Yo brother Hoh-Nez,
I like this one the most simply coz the little fella is pretty clear n sharp, etc...plus, it's kinda neat that he's just sitting there like a cool dude. He's got that look in his eye...one step closer and I'm gonna jump Mr. friggin' Welsh guy! Smile
IF you don't use a tripod for this kind of shot, then you certainly need a VR (IS) lens to get enough depth.

...Well if he'd jumped he'd have hit the CPL filter on the front of my lens. I reckon my glass was well with an inch of him.
These little fellas do like as cute as a button when you get up close.
