Jumping-Spider-1600

Jumping Spider in a blue cup shot on our terrace.

Shot using a D3100 with a reversed Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 on extension tubes mounted on a tripod and a Yongnuo YN560-II Speedlight off to the left. I held the cup up to the lens and moved it forwards, backward, side to side and took a picture every time I could see the spider was in focus, but obviously, spiders are able to sense when you have them in focus and are just about to shoot and they run away every time. After about 45 minutes of shooting the little guy I finally got a picture in focus. I was going to take a few more but he kept jumping onto the lens, and eventually he got away.

 

kestrel chick
04-07-2014

Baby Kestrel shot in Benalmadena, Spain. Four of them had a little nest on the side of a building.

Shot using a Nikon D3100 with a Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 at 200mm.

I waited at the location for about two and a half hours, just shooting the chicks, but unfortunately the mother didn’t return. I would have stayed longer, but I was sat on a strangers balcony to get these pictures.

Goldfinch

A little Finch shot in Malaga.

Shot using a Nikon D3100 and Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 at 300mm.

I only got one shot at getting this, as we were out birdwatching and we were walking from one hide to another, and along the way I spotted this little thing.

Common Kestrel
Common Kestrel shot in Malaga.

Shot using a Nikon D3100 and Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 at 300mm.

My autofocus had stopped working about 20 minutes prior to seeing this Kestrel, but I was still able to get a nice shot of it going old school with everything manual.

Almond blossom and bees
A couple of bees hanging around an Almond tree.

Shot using a Nikon D3100 and Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 at about 200mm.

This was a very lucky shot, as I was only trying to get the flower and the main bee in the picture, but just as I pressed the trigger another flew into the frame, and somehow they both turned out sharp.

This was just a snapshot of some cows, when I was out skateboarding with some friends in Denmark.

Shot using a D3100 and Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye.
