Jumping spider

There is very little going on in the macro department these days and as it is my favourite kind of photography I was really happy to see a little jumping spider having her lunch on my sideboard:


As she was taking her time I had some time to experiment and finally took these pictures with a 50mm F1.8 plus a 20mm extensionring and a tc-200, which is a rather antique 2x Nikon teleconverter. I topped it all off with a Nikon 6T close-up lens. Good thing the spider was not shy, because I had to get really close to get her in focus. Makes her look a little like a tarantula, though she is hardly more than 1 1/2 cm.
