A Fuzzy Portrait

A closer crop of one of my favorite jumping spiders: Phidippus putnami - A live handheld focus stacked image of about 12-14 shots blended in Photoshop.

Thank you!

Superb macro work

GAAAAHHHH love this. Cant stop looking, despit it creeping me out.

Thank you 😄

Great job, Liza! Glad I'm bigger than the spider, and not vice versa! Scary stuff. Would you mind saying how you vary the point of focus while doing presumably a longish burst handheld, without moving the camera too much?

Thanks a lot!! I'm sorry for late reply. I actually do move the camera back and forth or usually from the closest dof area towards the back, but it is ever so slightly and I pretty much hold my breathe as I move, not to mess it up.
