Lynx Spider (Yellow)

Lynx Spider (Yellow), originally uploaded by Yogendra174.

Raynox Magic again.

Had to do something with my new toy.. so went to the bushes on baron land behind my building... and guess what i found!! Frankly speaking it was sheer coincidence i found this one.. almost impossible to spot it by a casual onlooker.. i saw some "yellow" movement below a tiny leaf.. then it was matter of waiting for a few mins till his gentleman appeared on the front of the leaf in full colors.

True measure was about 5-7 millimeters.

About the name: Google Zindabad.. just searched spiky spider and confirmed with pictures. Here are a few links:

It feels so good when you shoot something and then find the name for it!

Natural Light.

Equipment: Canon 1000D + Raynox DCR 250 mounted on 70-300 sigma lens.. manual focus and handheld with some support with a monopod (yes if got this one with the raynox.. turns out to be a good combination).

Focal Length : 92mm
Exposure: 1/90s : f/9.5 : ISO 200

Post Processing: Almost nothing.. RAW conversion with UFRaw & just a few curves in GIMP.. that's it.

Medical Condition: Did i mention that the neck and the back pain like hell after 1 hour of macro photography. But can't complain!

Things i wished: I wished all the legs were in complete focus... it was not a mean feat to get 4 of them and the body in focus anyway!!
Few Out-takes of the same spider:
