Today I have sold five macro images of my jumping spiders!!!

posted on 2nd of october, 2012

I am very happy to see that today I have sold five macro images of jumping spiders in a row. Unfortunately all five was subscription sales, but still, I am glad that someone discovered my photos of those cute little jumpers and buyed them.

I really need to say that I love macro photography, and jumping spiders are my favorite macro subjects that I just love to shoot. I think that they are amazingly photogenic little salticid creatures.

Macro photography sales does not rate so high in microstock world, and because of that fact, those sales mean even more to me. So thanks a lot to buyer of my images.

Here are my five sold images.

Yes I have finally started to sell my macro photos...i was afraid that macro photos will not sell well, but I am pretty happy for now.

Nice photos. I bought a macro recently but need a teleconvertor to extend it and a few good insects to photograph.

Thanks a lot Ewapix, yes you are right, I really love jumping spiders. They are not like any other spider specie. Jumpers almost have their own personality. Simply amazing what you can learn by looking at them through my lens. Btw. just today I have sold another spider image :)...again it is sub sale, but I don't care...It seems like I have found a buyer who likes my images of spiders :)))...or she/he found me :)

Congratulations, Mario, I must agree - they almost look cute in your photos although normally spiders give me shivers! Amazingly, I think your images somehow show that you have a lot of sympathy for them. Good luck for more sales!

Congrats,Mario! They look pretty awesome...

Thanks guys...Elifranssens I try to shoot them in wilderness when ever I can. I have some of them at home only when I found them and I don't have my camera and equipment to shoot them at spot. Then I usually take them home, and then shoot them. After shooting, I always set them free.

Some of the spiders I have for 2-3 weeks in my home for study them. But then you need to provide them a living space, food and water. They are not very demanding so it is very easy to keep them as long as you want, and learn about them in the way.

I always keep them safe from any harm, and release them where I have found them later. I have learn a lot about jumping spiders in past few months. And believe me, they are not scary, and will never hurt a human if you treat them properly.

They are very small and most intelligent and peaceful species of all spiders in the world.

They might not be in high demand but when they are you certainly have the category covered. Good job!

Way to go, Mario! Best of luck in your future macro sales.

...cute little jumpers.... ???

They look rather terrifying to me... do you keep them in your house as pets or did you shoot these in the wild?
