Article Photos: OU student achieving big success with tiny bugs 2/11

Anterior median and lateral eyes of a female jumping spider. "I found this little (~5mm) female Maevia inclemens in a light fixture on my back porch," Shahan wrote, "and upon noticing that she was going to be quite a cooperative subject, I ran back inside and grabbed my macro bellows. I have no way of judging exactly what magnification the photo above was taken at, but I am confident it was taken past 5:1 with the 28mm reversed to the bellows. I spent a little bit watching her through the viewfinder as I could actually see that red haze move about behind those lenses! It's absolutely amazing to see these movements." <strong>Thomas Shahan - www.thomasshahan.com</strong>
