    Great stuff as usual allie. What was the JS on, a piece of paper?

    Jumping spiders jumping, Hoverflies hovering, what's next, Butterflies buttering? :D

    :D:D Yeah he was on some paper..wouldnt stop moving though, the adults are much more active than the babys.

    Im after a wasp in flight, but they are proving a seriously difficult prospect as there flight patterns are so random.

    I also struggle with wasps as they never sit still, never mind in flight. The trick seems to catch them when they are eating something, but I havn't managed a good one yet.

    great capture and like the shadow of the spider on the paper to show that it really is jumping

    stick them in the freezer for an hour or so then place it where you want :rotfl:
