Even if you have arachnophobia, don’t be too quick to skip this post 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.

We already wrote about Brusspup and his crazy anamorphic illusions – and now he’s back with new tricks! This time he attempts to bend water using an audio speaker set to produce a 24hz sine waves. His first video, testing the principle, made it look as the water was going upwards, but now Brusspup has taken it up a notch and actually makes the water flow in shapes and patterns!
Some probably think these fantastical shapes are created by computer, but actually, those are real liquid drops, captured in high speed by Corrie White. Born in the Netherlands and currently based in Canada, Corrie told us that water drop photography started off as a mere hobby and soon she went from using primitive tools to pro equipment.
UK-based photographer Sharon Johnstone uses her macro lens like a key to open the fascinating world of little things. She comes back with a beautiful collection of macro photographs showing tiny drops of dew on dandelions. “I think I am at my happiest when I am crawling around on my hands and knees exploring a small patch of moss dripping with sparkling dew in the early morning sun,” says Sharon.
At first, I thought they get these shots simply by mixing some paint with water and than dripping it while manually trying to catch the very best moments with a hand-held camera. But the truth is that photographers use sound vibrations to generate drops and professional electronic flash triggers sensitive enough to detect a clear water drop or a bullet traveling at over 1,300 km/hour.
