Photo of the Week: Jumping Spider
Itsy-bitsy but oh-so-close
YOU DON'T NEED TO GO FAR to get great photos. Pro photographer Bill Beatty found this jumping spider in his West Virginia backyard. “I noticed this tiny spider on a red clover flower head apparently hiding or searching for food. Each time it would come into reasonable view, I would shoot. It took a while, as the flash would frighten the spider back into hiding with each shot.” Beatty used a Nikon 8008s and 50mm lens with extension tubes and flash.
