Tricky little chap to photo, he (or she) didn't stay still for long. Soon after this shot I watched it hide behind cover then pounce at a fly, which took flight just in time. Fascinating viewing!

Taken: Sunday, 3rd June, 2018
Focal length: 105 mm
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec
Aperture: F20
ISO: 100
Notes: Taken with flash to allow use of f20 for (just) enough DoF. Setup included home concocted reflector and diffuser. Did everything to get a decent subject size, focused close as I could get and used a 20mm extension tube for a touch more magnification. Have to confess to some cropping too!
