A blog about what I love….photography and bicycles!

Birthday parties and spiders

This weekend we celebrated my middle daughter, Stella’s, birthday.  She invited a number of her friends over for a swimming/sleep-over party.  I made breakfast for the eight girls in the morning and one pointed out a little Salticid spider on the table.  I picked it up and put it on my arm so that I could photograph it later.  This caused a number of eleven year olds a lot of stress but after it climbed up my arm, over my shirt and onto my chin I took it off for a few photos and they relaxed.  Anyway, here they are, all taken with the usual rig of MPE65 and twin flash unit.  Shot inside on a piece of white board. Special thanks to Galina Azarkina for the ID (Thyenula species)





Many thanks for the visit folks….more to come!
