Two years ago, Jimmy Kong retired from his job as a lab technician and began teaching himself macro photography, the art of photographing teensy little things.

He seems to have gotten the hang of it, even though this Malaysian spider obviously has locked its gaze dead straight on Jimmy and his camera.

We suggest you click on the photo to appreciate it at its most embiggened.

Our information on this bug is quite limited. We know it lives (lived?) in the Phillipines, and we believe it to be smaller than a breadbox.
