Still trying to learn how to shoot jumping spider portraits. When the spider looks up at me, the window of opportunity to get the focus right is just a few seconds. With a lighter camera setup, the chances for success is greater.
Here's one image. Nothing spectacular, but hopefully better stuff next time.

1/200 sec, f13, 90D,90mm Tamron with Raynox250 built in flash with diffusion collar attached to front of lens, image cropped tighter.

Comments welcomed. They mean a lot to me. :)

Fine portrait, Darren. It hard to get the right pose with a jumping spider, but you did it in this image.

I think you've caught the moment of head tilt and eye contact very well indeed, Darren! Well done!
