The first butterflies of 2014 have been noticed and photographed yet (not by me) and due to the nice temperatures also other creatures came alive. On the wall around my window I found some ‘hungry’ Zebra jumping spiders (Salticus scenicus). As I caught a bad cold and because I know how difficult it is to photograph these little monsters when they are in action, I hesitated but my desire for a perfect photo was stronger. Again I took the MP-E 65 mm and tried to find them back in my viewfinder. Everybody who is using this lens knows where I’m talking about.
One spider was sitting on the ground and although the sun was shining, with a distance of a few centimetres it was a hide and seek game.
Not the perfect photo I’m dreaming of, but satisfied with my first jumping spider of 2014.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
