Just about to settle down the for the evening on Sunday, when I spotted this guy in the corner. (it might actually mean I can give a weekly photo challenge a go for this year...)
White Tail Face
Looks a bit ugly compared to some of the jumping spiders I've photographed before. (What is the world coming to when I'm considering the attractiveness of spiders?) White tails also apparently have a nasty bite which can cause severe reactions.
Usual set up - Nikon D7000, Tamron SP90, handheld single exposure, on camera flash + LED flash light.
I went out to enjoy the sunset and noticed that this fellow had set up house near my motorcoach. As a model, its not as pretty as butterflies but interesting anyway because it was nearly 8cm long overall.
This guy wasn't skittish at all but I still used the 200mm/4 micro to maintain a healthy distance:
C & C welcome.
Thanks for looking.
