These are fantastic! The lighting is excellent. May I ask what the approx. working distance is? Most jumping spiders are quite small aren't they?

They are small indeed. I honestly forget what my magnification was or if I used an achromat, but think its just 1x because they are cropped much more than I normally crop. With that said, I think cropping gets a bad rep considering most of us just share online. If printing, that changes things, but if sharing on FB and instagram you can crop a lot and noone will ever know the difference. I still try to not crop, or crop as little as possible, but Im not as opposed to it as I used to be.

That mentality works until your photos get popular and suddenly those cropped images end up getting printed. I know of a pretty well known macro shooter who got published in Popular Photography magazine, one who cropped his photos. To this day I don't understand how the editors ran the images, cause they looked almost as bad as the genitalia in a Japanese porno.

John, I know you are being cool with how you are discreet about who that was. Was it TS? Ive been dying to know. PM me and I will never say a word.
