I noticed outside a number of jumping spiders, and having had some success with a black porcelain tile I thought it would be worth another try but with a different spider (last time was a flower spider). There are plenty of jumping spiders outside my house so I safely collected one, put it on the tile and started taking pictures as it wandered around the tile.
The images were taken with a Nikon D5300 digital camera, and a Sigma 150mm Macro. Once I had finished I safely collected the jumping spider and put it back where I found it outside.
Amusingly after I had placed it outside, another spider walked across my desk while I was processing these almost as if to make fun of me.
Overall the photos came out OK, They are a tiny bit noisy and could do with a bit more light but otherwise for another attempt it seems OK.
As I type this the jumping spider walks across my field of view again….. (I do want to clarify, my house is clean and it not a spiders nest for those that think otherwise lol!).
