Juvenile Thomisid (Crab-Spider).

This is a daylight shot, as this family are ambush predators. They don't have very good eye-sight. The chap was very small so I used a macro-rail to fine-tune the focus, an eye-piece magnifier so I could actually see what I was focusing on, and twin flashes on a macro-bracket. The Raynox 6x adapter was also used for additional magnification.

Indoor staged shot, hence the blue-card behind the subject . It's too windy for macro-work outside today.

Yes- for the very small creatures a macro rail really helps get a workable shot

Here's a couple from a bigger girl enjoying a paper-wasp. This was a simpler shot while we were being 'tourists'. So just one flash, no tripod/rails etc...

That´s odd. I posted a B&W picture of some beetle here earlier and it showed up all right. But now it has vanished along with the rest of the post?
