Macro–Jumping Spider with prey


Jumping Spider with Prey IV

I brought back this jumping spider to my home because I’m unable to shot this spider on location. Why? Because there’s too much mosquito on that area and I did not prepare for it lol. So I put inside a plastic container and catch a mosquito to feed it at night then I take out my dslr and shoot it when it’s eating the prey. I have so much fun and exited watching the spider catching the prey flying around the plastic container. The Jumping spider did not move much after the mouth is full with Enjoy the rest of the pics.

All picture were shot with Tamron SP AF90 attach with Raynox DCR-250. So the magnification of all the picture is around 2:1 if I’m not mistaken.

Macro–Golden Spiky Ants–Battle of the Titan II


Golden Spiky Ant - Battle of the Titan II

I have no idea what are they fighting for. This 2 Golden Spiky Ants is battle it all out while there are few others watching at the side. It is like watching historical movie in Ancient Rome, the Battle of the Titan. This is the 2nd time I shot this ants fight. The link for the first shot I took few month way back is here Battle of the Titan I. This Golden Spiky Ant is easier to shoot as they are not too actively moving much like their other species the Black Spiky Ants.
