Fencehopper spider

By barry john
Marpissa muscosa
(fencehopper spider) This tiny spider actually about 4mm long was spotted in one of the plants in the garden. I set my camera and bellows extension completed with macro lens and Nikon wireless flash system up. I am pleased with the shot as the depth of field was very shallow indeed this was at f9.5 the two lights in the eyes are the close up flashes set at 1-3 ratio to give some modeling
Thanks for looking all comments welcomed
