Not much spiders today. Did not see the Heavy Jumper as I did in the past weeks nor the ant mimicking spiders. But saw a small JS, a pair of mating leafhoppers, one tiny white insect, and a extremely skittish male banded pintella jumping spider, and in its nest!

Appreciate any comments!

Very nice! May I know the location you went for these shots?
One of your shots was taken at 1/800!! Was there a lot of available light at that time of did you use a strong flash?

Nice catch on the mating hoppers. #7 is excellent... pity the head is a little OOF but the little leg that is in focus make up for it. I didn't know they make nest like that:)

Thks!
This was taken at the park at Henry Park (opposite Henry Park pri school).
The morning sun was quite bright, and the yellow leaves also very reflective, so had to increase the shutter speed so as not to over expose it.
