I found this tiny spider in the bathroom last night and tried my best to get a shot. I thougt it had gone and was about to give up when I saw it crawling over the flash diffuser! I encouraged it to crawl over my finger then quickly grabbed a shot!

Mouse Spider

A little Mouse Spider (Scotophaeus blackwallii) found in the kids room and captured with the Canon 10D + macro lens.
This is one of those cases where Live View would be handy as to get thew shot I had to hold the camera stretched out in front of me and guess the shot-could just see the spider in the viewfinder. Also one of the rare occasions I use AF! Would have been impossible without it!
