Week 17 – Robin

Pantropical Jumper

Pantropical Jumper (Plexippus paykulli)

My husband and I went out this afternoon to take some photos, but it started raining right after we started. 😦 I snapped a few of this jumping spider on my car. A pantropical jumper spider. I have seen a few of these around lately in other places. They are cool looking and move quickly.

Used a Canon 6D and a 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens. Settings were 1/640 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100.

Gray Wall Jumper

A gray wall jumper spider about to dine on a tasty moth…on my wall outside. He let me stay around for a few moments and and join him. He didn’t move much while he ate. 😀

Canon 6D and f/2.8L Macro IS USM. Settings were 1/160 sec, f/5.0, ISO 400. Used Topaz Adjust to sharpen and make a few minor corrections.

Yellow Crab Spider on Yellow Flower

When I took this photo I didn’t see the yellow crab spider. I just noticed that some type of pod had impaled the center of the flower. Sometimes you never know until you bring it up on your computer!

Used an Olympus EM1 and 150mm lens. Settings were 1/640s, f/4.5, ISO 200.

Moth and Spider on Lantana

The NWG’s went to “Stick Marsh” this very beautiful Sunday! The weather couldn’t have been better. We had a great time, as always! 🙂

This is a Zabulon Skipper on a native lantana. There is also a spider on the same bloom!

I used an Olympus OM‑D E‑M1 and a M. Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f1.8 lens. Not a true macro and heavily cropped, but not too bad. 🙂
