Even if you have arachnophobia, don’t be too quick to close this page yet! Jumping spiders have got to be the cutest spiders of all. More than that, they were recently photographed wearing tiny water droplets as their hats, and that way completely denying their image of being threatening and scary. Uda Dennie, 33-year-old photographer from Batam Island, Indonesia, photographs these little fellows in his own garden. His almost cartoonish macro photos portray the tiny arachnids among droplets that are almost as big as their heads. Little bits of the surroundings, after being caught by the droplet, take up its round shape and add yet another beautiful touch to Uda’s shots.
The results came as a surprise even for the photographer himself: “I was really surprised to get such amazing pictures – it was really wonderful. I have seen anything like this before, it is such an interesting photograph,” says Uda.
Looking at his great pictures, it may be hard to believe that Uda only started taking photos with a DSLR camera in March 2010. He came across some macro photos on the Internet and realized this was what he would dedicated his time to: “I have a real passion for macro photography and after lots of trial and error I’m now able to produce good images – perseverance really paid off.”
