Pardosa saltans - male macro 3, Heeswijk-Dinther, Netherlands A few 5:1 macro shots of the male of Pardosa saltans. I took one home from a hike where they were running around on the forest floor in large numbers. I sacrificed it.<br />
<br />
Although I&#039;m still not 100% satisfied with technical quality, I think the subject itself is super cool at this magnification. It has a great horror factor. In particular the eyes lack any expression, like glass domes with nothing behind it. <br />
<br />
Try to imagine being its prey, and this running at you. You wouldn&#039;t notice the running itself as these are very fast spiders.<br />
