Hey everyone I just am about to burst with happiness, in checking my profile for sales this morning I scrolled down and nearly fell off my chair -- my favorite macro model, Truman the jumping spider has been selected as an Editors Choice!
This plucky little fellow is out in the flowers every afternoon looking for fly snacks and never seems to mind posing for a few photos.
The fact that many people fear or scorn these tiny creatures is at times disheartening. Therefore, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the Editor for enjoying this photo and making it my first Editors Choice.
Cheers to all --
congrats! cool shot.
Congratulations It is a great turning point
Thank you Iris! Good luck and best wishes to you as well. :)
Congratulations! That's a scary little creature. I have named some of the frogs that live around my house, but never a spider. Good luck with all your sales.
Hey Maigi, Great information, thanks! Truman lives in a Marguerite bush (chrysanthemum frutescens) in my garden. His name was given by a friend who viewed his photo and just felt a spider with this much personality required a name I have not seen Truman for a few days -- hopefully he has not become dinner for a bird! :(
You mentioned that Truman, (which is not a true man, but in fact a true spider - Truspider? :)) is a jumping spider. Do you keep it as a pet or does it just live in your backyard?
Great photos! Love your cats. Especially biggest ones. Your spider is cute too. I suspect some of the reviewers are arachnophiles here, one of my EC-s is a lovely Fringed Ornamental Tarantula too. :) Congratulations!
Congratulations, wonderful image that I am sure will see many sales...
Hey Lauren, Thanks for the kind comment. It is not often that people see the beauty of these little creatures!
Congrats! Your model is gorgeous!
Oh my, cuddly! I never thought of them in that respect -- thank you for your kind comment and for brightening my evening! :)
That's terrific! Great job. It's hard to make spiders cuddley, but you have!
Congratulations! Amazing shot!
Thanks very much! This particular spider seem to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine. Again thanks to all of you for your kind comments. Not many find these creatures "beautiful" :)
Congrats --and that's a great photo!
Congratulations! He really is beautiful up close.
Congrats! I like your model... I can never get mine to come out into the sunshine.
Thanks Susan and Tim! I'm still beaming about this one :)
